    The Sanctuary Of Truth
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    The Sanctuary of Truth Museum is the world’s largest and most beautiful woodcarving structure. In addition to an opportunity to study arts and philosophy of goodness, the museum also features contemporary architecture, created in the reign of King Rama IX. The beauty and value of the arts at the Sanctuary of Truth Museum will make you feel something paradoxical but they are harmonious. What to expect: • The visitors will get to learn how the grand castle has been built by ancient wood-joining techniques you can’t see elsewhere in the world - Tongue and groove (wedge) techniques, butt joint, dovetails, sapped spurs, etc, which are all traditional Thai intellectual properties. • Once-in-a-lifetime experience to participate in the construction of the miraculous national & world heritage. • Optional add-on activities to offer: (could only choose one/all of the options) - ATV - Horse Riding - Horse Carriage - Sightseeing by Speedboat - Sightseeing by Ancient boat with free coconut - Or you could choose all the options have to offer! Inside The Sanctuary of Truth: • The rooftop stands a 4-faced Brahma which symbolizes the rulers’ great morals. • The Throne at the center of the castle. Each section the rooftops carry moral meanings for humanities you could discover: - The Eastern rooftop (E) features a beauty queen carrying the scriptures. - The Northern rooftop (N) features a fairy carrying a lotus. - The Western rooftop (W) features a beauty queen carrying ears of paddy and a pigeon hold an arm. - The Southern rooftop (S) features a fairy holding an arm of a child and an old man. - The central apex features a fairy riding on a horse.

The complex includes many activities if you would like to pay extra & you could easily spend much of a day there. But the showcase temple is so exquisitely designed & painstakingly built by hand. Each wooden carving has meaning & has been added to the temple over many years. Every nook has the most beautiful carvings & you can view the artists at work.
A must see whilst at Pattaya for an entry fee of just 500baht per person. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

The Sanctuary of thruth is an exceptional place. A must see when visiting Thailand as it is so different to every other temple. It is unique.

I found this place on the internet and it said it was a “must see”. I’m a runner and any reasons to run to a place is exciting. I woke up early and headed out on my 5.5 mile run.

The place is very cool. Surprisingly, they started construction on it in 1981, it’s still being constructed and it’s interesting to watch the guys carve the wood. The entry fee is a bit steep but I’d say it’s worth it given that it’s one of a few things to see in Pattaya.

For some reason, someone thought it was a great idea to have elephants here. Given the wide spread abuse of elephants in Thailand, why here? Look, I’m not a vegan, vegetarian, or even a PETA fan. I just don’t see the point of having this elephant area. The elephants were chained down to the ground with a 12 foot chain. They must be charging for rides because I saw the elephant had some kind of saddle apparatus. Again, why have it at this temple?

If you condone animal abuse, spend your money here!
