The Sanctuary Of Truth, Pattaya Reviews
Shrine/ Castel and amusement complex. Worth a visit if your done with the beach area. I walked from near the pedestrian street and had no issues getting there other than watching the road for traffic. There were options to give up and take a taxi at 100 spots along the way. Has small zoo, petting area, Elephant, walk down to the shrine with a small creek and waterfall thing, restaurant, snacks cold drinks. Shrine itself had a wonderful view on par in terms of detail with a European Cathedral. Woodwork was amazing with the flying Statues and Buddhist iconography. 500 Baht entrance, have coverings for legs and shoulders. I wore shorts and no one cared.
This beautiful all-wooden structure is made of detailed carvings Hindu Gods, mythical creatures and Buddhist motifs. Located on the coast this place has got a very scenic view overlooking the sea. It looks like work in progress. Reconstruction/repair was going on when I visited in Jan 2018. But was allowed to enter the the premise. You can also visit the workshop and see live wood carving. There is also a cafe/restaurant in the woods.
Be lost in heaven! Must visit to this wonderful place. All made of wooden furniture and no nails. It is one of the oldest structure and not finished yet. It is inspired by Buddhism and Hindu Gods. you will love to take a snap in front of the gate of Sanctuary of Truth.
Marvelous handmade work! It is a full-wood building and full of sculptures based on traditional Buddhist and Hindu motives. The main style is based on Ayutthaya's Thai architecture. The building is not used as a temple and still is not completed. The end is scheduled for 2050. The price is little high - 500 bahts per person for entrance.
It's a great place with great views. But I was kinda disappointed that's it's not as old as I expected. When you get inside grab a leaflet and you'll understand. Also they have elephant riding which is NOT OKAY, as elephants are not meant for riding and they are tortured.
