  • The sanctuary of truth is a wooden church in Pattaya, on the shore of the Gulf of Thailand. Construction of the temple began in 1981 year and continues to this day. So at the entrance give out helmets ⛑ Building was constructed using ancient knowledge of Thai construction and wood carvings, every square inch of the temple is a wooden carved sculptures and ornaments for religious and mythological subjects of Cambodia China, India and Thailand. The purpose of such ornaments is to use art and culture as a reflection of the ancient vision of Earth, ancient knowledge and Eastern philosophy given that I've already seen quite a number of different Churches, and is difficult to wonder something, but this temple definitely recommend to visit. Submits and admire its splendor!

  • It’s actually a temple which has various tourist activities. The temple itself is very spectacular with gigantic and beautiful wood craving. It’s actually have Buddha relics in which you can worship. However, the surrounding have a lots of tourist activities including boats riding, foot massage, ATV and animal riding. Yes, the temple is under construction, undergoing construction for 37 years now and ongoing construction for another decades maybe as it is made of wood and need to repair and replace consistently. Every sculptures and corners has it’s own meaning. There actually a guided tour which they will explain liberally, unfortunately they need more translator as they explain it mostly in Thai. เจตนาดี I think it’s worth the entrance ticket.
  • There's a unique feel about this place that i haven't experienced in other places of worship. It's not exactly a temple but it's a symbol of humanity. yes you can see buddhist symbols everywhere but the feeling does not revolve around them. for my first visit i hired a guide and she was really kind and gave me a lot of info but it was the second visit alone that changed my view of this amazing place. it enthralled me in a way that i could feel all of my emotions were flowing through my body like i was being one with the world! and at the end the 4 statues of mother, father and children was mesmerizing enough to make me cry (inside!). you can go there and take photos; and you can go there and feel the spiritual energy that the sanctuary has. it's completely up to you!
