  • Amazing construction more then 40 years in the making. And this without a screw or nail used. A must see when in Pattaya.

  • A place like no other. Firstly it's not a temple, it's a museum showcasing architecture that's combination of Indian, Cambodian and Thai mythology. The location is serene, it's quality of built is...

  • I went back in 2016. It’s nice if you are a fan of visiting Buddhist temples (although this is not a temple that is meant for prayer, but mainly as as a tourist attraction). The wood carving is nice. Maybe you won’t spend a long time. A short visit should be enough. A tour guide was already included in the ticket price. a Modest dress code is required... taking off shoes also. If you are lucky you might catch a great performing show (like me) outside the building.
  • It is an amazing wooden building that has deep messages for life. The guide is so kind and such an educated person. I forgot his name but I attached his photo along with the other photos. His way of explaining is so clear for everyone, and I feel as if I’m reading a philosophical book. The Museum building has so many details that are handmade professionally. Each and every detail has a meaning. Not one corner doesn’t have a meaning. It’s unbelievable. I think I’ll come again in the future to see the updates.
  • Impressive! We didn't research the place at all before we went in and found out the tick is 500 baht per person. Which is quite expensive for an attraction in Thailand. That's the same price with the grand Palace in Bangkok. So we weren't sure about going in so we asked to just go in to their restaurant and have some breakfast. And as soon as we walk in the restaurant and see the building itself it was so impressive omg we were like well now we definitely have to go in. So we ended up spending the whole afternoon there. Its not an actual Buddhist temple it's more like a massive art exhibition. The tour guide is really great as well. Especially recommend if you're interested in Asian art and philosophy.
  • Amazing building. Definitely a must see whilst in Pattaya. Wasn't too keen on the obligatory tour. Our guide didn't speak clear English and nobody really understood. There were other guides who were fluent English speakers that we could hear who would have made it better though (can't comment on the tours in other languages). Really well ran place and well worth the 500 baht entry fee.
  • The Sanctuary of Truth, wasn't sure what to expect here. But actually the building itself is magnificent, some of the detail and stories behind the carving. are an inspiration. Although I've had to knock a star off as when I arrived they could not take the card, phone pay and initially walked away thinking that I couldn't get in. Then after leaving the gate I thought about booking online which I did. Also none of the food or drinks counters took cards, or any electronic payment. But apart from that it's worth the visit just to see the building and the carvings taking place.
