Must see attraction in Pattaya for lovers of culture and architecture. The wood carvings are majestic. Thinking about the dedication of the craftsmen who did them makes the place more amazing.The entrance fee is a bit pricey but I think with the sword fights, traditional dances, elephant sightseeing and tour that goes with it, it's fine.

This place is truly beautiful. The craftsmen ship is amazing to see as it is in progress since 1981. Amazing to see such artistic wonders still being built in today's modern era, keeping the heritage of wood working alive. The grounds are well kept and relaxing. Spend an hour or 5 ....either way you won't regret it. Besides, you might... More

this temple is made from wood and its an amazing experince to see this...most of the people come to pattaya for the obvious reasons but this place is worth to see , but i think the ticket price of 500 baht is too much. it shouldn't be more than 200-250 baht

There are not many 'attractions' in Pattaya, but this is one worth visiting. The Sanctuary of Truth presents seven creators through carved wood sculptures which adorn its interior. They are: Heaven , Earth , Father , Mother , Moon , Sun and Stars. It really is a magnificant buidling in Na Klua. Take the time to wonder at the range... More

Fabulous Day out whilst in Pattaya. The carving and workmanship is wonderful. Really enjoyed the free tour, whilst not that informative, still gave us some interesting information about the structure.

After visiting for the 9th time in 3 years, recommending to work colleagues. Have seen the progress over this time simply amazing. Can highly recommend to take elephant tour to start before taking a guided tour and a traditional Thai dancing.
