The Sanctuary Of Truth - Review
A serene, calm and meaningful tourist destination worth a visit is the Sanctuary of truth in Thailand. This tall structure made of wood houses within it an amazing representation of the culture and architecture of Thailand. Built in the traditional style it is a monument worth a visit.
The idea behind it is to preserve the eastern wisdom architecture and message of peace through this shrine built as an ode to it. The wooden sculptures depict Hindu and Buddhist Gods as well as different elements from their mythologies. Each section is full of symbolism and intricate awe-inspiring carvings.
You should try and visit this modern attempt at preserving the past and marvel at its majesty. It is a very surreal experience to see the intricateness of the carvings and try to understand their importance from the point of view of Eastern Philosophy. There is a lot to take in with the depth of meaning of each carving being rooted in the ancient wisdom of Asia.

The Sanctuary Of Truth, Pattaya Reviews
Really picturesque place, and loved the concept of the place. The whole place including the sanctuary was built for tourists so all the prices are a little inflated. It was under construction when we went (which we wasn't informed about until after paying the full price), this also meant you had to wear a construction helmet whilst walking around the place, and half of the entrances were closed to the public/you couldn't view half of it it because it was covered in scaffolding. If you're a woman be aware you'll need to cover your legs (common knowledge if you've ever visited similar places in Thailand), if not though they'll let you rent a Sari which you can get your money back if you return (or you can keep for 200 baht.) The 'show' was enjoyable and can't complain as it was free (with a suggested tip if you'd like). Wasn't keen on horses dragging around carts with people in 35 degree temperatures, they were clearly overworked and overheating. Same goes with the elephants who kept getting pick axes dug into their ears by the staff to ensure they didn't stampede any of the tourists. I'd recommend not contributing your money to anything animal related unless you know they're being treated well and not being ridden on.
The temple was under construction... you can see scaffolding in one of the images. The workers were carving out the parts needed for the temple out of wood. I was still able to walk around a lot. The interior was stunning and well kept.
A Must visit in Pattaya. 10 minutes from central pattaya in a taxi. Plenty of options to choose from on ticket purchase including a relaxing foot massage prior to entering the sanctuary. The woodwork is exquisite in this marvel of a structure and is enormous in appeal and awe. It's is still a work in progress but majorly completed. Great for kids and arts students. Glad we visited..Tickets start from around 500 baht.
Definitely worth seeing, amazing architecture and woodwork. Not alot of shade so bring water. It only takes about 20 minutes max to walk through. The tour guide might be worth it to explain all of the carvungs and truly appreciate the work. There is some food, drinks and ice cream to buy after because you are kind of in the middle of nowhere once you get out. Convenience store outside of the property if need be. Please don't support riding the animals it's super cruel and heartbreaking to see. They need to be sent to one of the several sanctuaries in Thailand.
One can't miss this. A must visit if one is interested in architecture and wood crafts. The entire place is wood. Even the floor one would walk. Each pillar has distinct design. Each section has distinct theme. Ensure you keep a 360 degree eye over the place.
