Sanctuary of Truth (Prasat Sut Ja-Tum), Pattaya

Visit Sanctuary of Truth (Prasat Sut Ja-Tum), an atmospheric, intricately carved Buddhist temple.

With an intensive attention to detail and a sensitive balancing of contemporary aesthetics and traditional architecture, there's plenty to appreciate about this work in progress--so don't let its completion date of 2050 put you off.

  • Definitely recommended when staying in Pattaya. Great architecture and lots of other activities to do - interactions with animals (elephants), photographs, seeing the wooden carvings to be handmade et...  more »
  • Very nicely. Recommend. You can visit on your own, just taking a taxi or tuk-tuk. There is a Russian speaking guide.

  • In the magnificent temple buildings are worth seeing. Inside the temple, staff clerk. Elephant riding a speed boat was the glue.

  • A marvelous wood carving temple that has been around for a long time. We spent hours admiring the wood carving and surrounding. Ticket price is slightly on the high side, 500 baht but you will understand once you view the amazing structure. One of the must visit tourist spot in Pattaya.
  • A must visit for every one...beautiful wooden carvings. You can see beautiful statues of Hindi Gods and hear the sacred mantras there. It's on the sea shore a beautiful view can be seen at the sunrise..
  • Nice historical place and unique place to visit.. don't miss to visit this place. Just 450 baht... And you can enjoy a lot to this place. Totally wooden construction . You have never seen this type of thing through the world.
  • An amazing construct with Thai art that creates beautiful wood. The 500-bat entrance is worth the money. The structure is still being completed, with a range of local restaurants and side entertainment such as elephant rides.
  • This place is a must watch. The whole building is craved in wood. Work still continues. If you are looking for some great pics then it's a very good option. The entry fee is about 500 bhat each. But definitely it worth a watch. This is a religious place ofcourse but certainly not a temple. And they welcome all the religion.

Where to stay in Pattaya

Stay near Walking Street for lodgings closest to Pattaya's famous nightlife. Head up the coast to find quieter and bigger rooms in budget hotels or the more expensive resort-style complexes. You can also look in Soi Buakhao, where backpacker hostels and economical hotels offer easy access to main attractions, activities, and facilities.
