  • An absolute must see, be crazy not to ! We were struck by how much work has gone into this timber structure, all chiseled by young artists .  more »
  • Located in a large park, can walk on an elephant, in a carriage to the temple located at the edge of the sea. The tour is done must be accompanied by a guide (non-francophone) and equipped with a headphone. However, you can walk alone in the temple and surrounding area. Think through the workshops of sculpture.

  • In Pattaya is Thailand's "Sagrada Familia" or saying, but what size and what scale, much less tourism anyway are gone, there's no loss, it seems. Certainly not complete some construction is "come on, seriously, I do work! "And thrusting into be like matter and construction. It may have no intention of completing. Make people a lot of sculpture. I think it is an excellent way to spend the daytime hours in Pattaya. From the road in five chartered sǎwngthǎew from 100 Baht. Sǎwngthǎew gave us will have operating in the de向ou the front of the hotel was hailed. "Good! Some ride is from 100 Baht. "I was feeling. During the visit were waiting in the parking lot. See what?

After all, drove me to the million years stone Park & Pattaya crocodile farm, took us to the floating market, half-day tour to came back to the hotel. I dropped by a good rate changer, am obliged to.

  • As on June’17 some sort of renovation work is going on in Sanctuary of Truth. The design and architecture is magnificent. You will be amazed to see the huge wooden art work here. Outside of Sanctuary of Truth they have option to ride on the elephant. Regarding drinks I recommend you to have coconut water here. There coconut here is very sweet and refreshing.
  • A must visit in Thailand. The carvings are amazing. The deities are from Hindu and Buddhist pantheon. The view from any side is spectacular.
  • Totally worth a visit. Built in 1980s and still going on. This is a place where you can find Hindu and Buddhist ideologies and Idols. The wood art is very nice. It needs about an Hour to two hours for a complete walk around. The charge for entry of the Sanctuary of Truth is 500 THB.
  • It's a good place to visit if you like architecture. Made of wood, it's very huge. Only issue is, it's under renovation so still not of that quality due to wear and tear, may be post renovation, it's look will be better.
  • Amazing wood works, but it was not maintain properly.... as of June 2017 renovation is going on. One of the must visit place
