The Sanctuary of Truth is located SOI 12, keep going towards the sea.....''I WOULD SAY NOT FOR WHEELCHAIRS''....... Also, good pair of trainers for the hike down.....From the top you have a downwards trip on a narrow wooden walkway, with side small turns blocked off, this is to say 'Once on the path of Truth don't stray off it' as...

It's far from the city, take me 30 min to reach there as along the way, you find yourself stuck in the traffic jam. So plan your time before visit. I used After taxi driver park at the car park, he lead me to a small room whereby you can buy your entrance ticket, it's better yourself buy the ticket... More

Very interesting place, built not for any one religion, but for ALL religions. Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Catholic, Seikh, you name it, somewhere in here it's included. Do note, however that this is NOT a religious site as such, just a model of someone's ideal way to co-exist. We went for a wander, not really knowing what to expect, but... More

A site not to be missed if staying in the Pattaya area. An incredible"wooden" built temple, exquisitively carved and like the "Gaudi" cathedral in Barcelona still not completed. Literally hundreds of workers are still carving out of wood to complete the inside. Make sure you take a tour to learn everything about it.

Due to the price, didn't enter - maybe I've lived here to long, but it should not cost 500 Bath to enter a place like this!

This is a wooden temple where they never stop recovering all the wood. Located in the north off Pattaya

Whatever your belief if any you cannot fail to be truly inspired by this amazing feat of architecture. It is almost impossible to acknowledge the skills time and effort that went into designing and construction of this temple from purely hard wood. Magnificent from a distance and unbelievably intricate up close. The atmosphere is inspirational. Beautiful views out to sea... More

Very interesting building, all made from wood, with pieces being constantly replaced. One can see the artists at work while visiting the Sanctuary.

It is near to Nah Klua in Pattaya,but at the end of a weird and shabby road.You can't help being immpressed with the workmanship of the craftsmen that have done the carvings. However,I found it all a bit boring after 30 minutes.It wasn't worth the money.
