Fabulous building, interesting talking to the people inside and watching the wood carving taking place. Don't forget it's a temple and knees and shoulders need to be covered.

Constructed entirely in wood by hand and with not a single nail, the workmanship and intricate detail is amazing. Inside you'll also find bits of information and parts of stories from Buddhism and the Mahabarata. From the entrance you can either walk, or get a horse and carriage to take you to the temple. I have to apologise as I... More

The building is amazing and is all built by teak wood. As it is built next to the ocean, continuous workmanship all year round to fix the wooden building. Must see.

Great art work in wood. Worth the visit. Cheaper when you book online (online price is THB 450, walk in price is THB 500). Not near the city, so we took a taxi.

The Sanctuary of Truth is one of the most artistic monuments of our times, considering that it is less than 40 years old and owned by a private owner. The art work on wood will leave you spell bound. It is an amazing mix of cultures from India, China and the South east asian countries.

Nice old hand carved tempel. It's very interesting walking around watching the small details of this fantastic building. When you get tired walking you can enjoy a bite odd food or a beer at the restaurant or watching the dolphin show. It's a place suitable for the whole family.

The salesperson convinced us to take the package including admission + horse riding for the kids / carriage for parents, saying that the rides would save us from walking and take us to the Sanctuary and circle around it, stopping over for photos ... Don't bother! Actually you have to walk a long distance from the ticket office, go down... More

Entry fee 500 bht. The temple was spectacular - architecture, history and show...you name it. Some corners were under construction, you can see the artists curving wooden sculptures during the visit. Really impressive place in Pattaya for visit.

A cool place to see. You have to pay to get in but it was worth it. The carvings were very elaborate and the people were still carving it today
