Absolutely Gorgeous carvings, great little show in the dining area, nice self guided tour of the temple, which is beautiful! Women must wear a sarong, which they will provide free to use, if you are wearing shorts or a skirt that shows your knees.

We have been going to Pattaya for a few years now and had seen the sanctuary of truth advertised countless times but just assumed it was another temple. How wrong could we be...

I have lived in Thailand for three years and I have been in many temples but this was one of the more unique ones. It is made completely of teak wood. The tickets are over priced at 1000 baht per person but the temple is beautiful and worth seeing. Plus you get a great view of the ocean.

The entire building is carved out from wood, really something to see! A lot of effort has gone into the 'sanctuary of truth'. While we visited the building was under construction, so it was difficult to get a photo without construction workers or scaffolding in it. Worth a short visit, just to see the place!

What a truly unique and amazing place to visit, the temple itself is hard carved from timber which they are still carving new pieces to go in it. There is a lot of activities to do there if you want to eg elephant rides, different types of shows etc.

The Temple was amazing but it takes very little time to view it. For the cost you probably won't be able to fill a day. It was worth it for me though.

Apart from being amazed at the atchitecture & aweing at the structure, There's not really a lot to see or do - This would be quickly tiring for young children.

Overpriced for what you see but it's a place which can be visited if you don't have a tight travel plan.
