Away from the madness of Pattaya on the shore is this beautifully built structure claimed to be a wooden pagoda. Bearing in mind it is called sanctuary if truth, it is interesting to see that the main support structure for the building is actually reinforced concrete and steel covered with wood. That aside, what is wood is very beautifully carved... More

Don't miss out seeing this beautiful temple/structure, make sure to cover your knees and shoulders though otherwise you won't be allowed near/inside! We got there when it had literally just opended, it was great to watch the Thai workmen hard at work engraving the wood using tools and their bare hands. The structure will not actually be finished until 2025,... More

When the monument is called the "Sanctuary of Truth", you expect to visit a sacred temple where people go to pray or pay respect to the gods. Instead, we felt we have arrived at an tourist amusement park... Don't get me wrong, the temple itself is a gorgeous architectural beauty and the carvings are marvelous. But what is a petting...

We found it quite hard to find as we were driving, and it is somewhat confusing when you get into the compound about where you need to drive too. It is not clearly laid out, and the signage is poor. Apart from that the building itself is incredible a beautiful wooden carved temple. You also get to see the artisans... More

We had to walk down close to 3-4 KMs from the main road towards SoT. But you have the option to rent bike to cover this distance or to just ask for a lift to anyone going towards that side. The place is value for money. From top it looks SoT is standing in middle of sea. It is surrounded... More

This place has an amazing feel to it. The Thai wood carvers are so talented, each piece is hand carved.
