Must see. My 3.5 year old enjoyed it a lot. The 16 month old was bored. Quite a bit of construction going on but it's beautiful. The grounds are really nice and the temple itself is amazing. Good for a few hours out with the kids and we got to see the traditional dancing and fighting which was very amusing... More

Definitely worth a visit. Amazing to see the detail of the building in person. The photos dont do it justice. Can access it by a short scooter ride from the main pattaya area. There is also opportunity to feed baby goats and do an elephant ride, we didnt as we had a safari booked later in our trip. A nice... More

We were staying near the beach road and it didn't cost much to get to the sanctuary of truth. It costs 500 baht to get in but if you book line it's a little cheaper. It will take a couple of hours to have a proper look round, it's gorgeous. Please if you want to ride an elephant can you... More

This is a piece of art that is a must visit. The place is amazing and the work there is never ending. There are still people working and and can see a lot of scaffolds. The place is designed as a Buddhist and Hindu history and idols. There are some thai traditional dance and fight shows in regular intervals. Don't... More

What an amazing place ! A big temple - like building all carved out of wood without using a single nail... being built on the sea side also adds to it's beauty ... the inside carved figures are all based on religious Buddhist and Hindu stories . I particularly liked the Astronomical part where you can guess according to a... More

We were wowed by this piece of architectural marvel we never expected it to be so magnificent. The ticket price for entering the temple is around 500 baht but we chose to view this only from the viewing terrace as we had seniors and young kids with us so climbing up and down 65 steps would have been a task...
