I shall not debate if the building is beautiful or not; I shall not argue if a visit is justifiably expensive or not, I shall not talk if it takes one hour or more to comprehensively visit this monumental shrine to fully absorb the background and historic value of the building. I think that is left to the beholder. But... More

This is a one of a kind project that should be on everyone's schedule when coming to Pattaya. Magnificent carving and woodwork set in a lovely location on the water in North Pattaya. This is a project that is never ending and each time you visit, more and more carvings and additions have taken place. Well worth the time to... More

At first , I was disappointed at the entrance, it look like a run down carnival with mini zoo, closed down booths of games and whatever they used to be, and goat/sheeps ,skinny horses and elephants trapped so tourists can pay to feed them or take pictures with, kinda ironic to the whole idea of Sanctuary...... As for the temple... More

I am personally a fan of intricate woodwork, and the Sanctuary of Truth was simply amazing to me. The entire structure is hand crafted and has been under constructions for generations. To me, this is a must see place.

They are continually expanding the sanctuary...........it's a truly amazing structure.........the workers are making repairs to existing structure and biulding new on a continuous basis. I was amazed as much by the craftsmanship as the beauty of the structure. We took a boat ride as well to get a view from the water. Fantastic!

This is a must see when in Pattaya. The ticket price is a bit hefty but you wont be disappointed with what you see. The Thai dance show is very nice as well. Glad we visited this place. It cost us 150THB from Beach Rd in the blue open van to get there. It's not very far approx 10 mins... More
