The sheer size of this wooden structure is amazing. The moment you reach the restaurant located near the entry point of Sanctuary of Truth, you can literally hear your jaw going down in slow motion because of the scene in front of you. The temple is dedicated to Hinduism and Buddhism. It is still under construction and has been under... More

The sanctuary was fantastic and right on the sea front it's just stunning the amount of work gone into it is clearly visible but the was they treat the elephants is nothing short of disgusting stabbing them with a sharp knife on a stick and if they don't do what the person wants he bashed the elephant over the head...

A stunning hand carved, wooden temple that is constantly under construction due to erosian. Quite expensive entry fee but worth it once you see the temple. there is also a Thai sword show and restraunt which is lovely
