No wounder this is number # 1 tourist destination. Your Pattaya visit is incomplete if you have not visited this. Super art work on wood. Budha and Hindu God and Goddesses are crafted on wood depicting the life, earth and believe. Architecture is Great and HUGE. They have cultural show around 3:30 PM for 45 min duration. It is good....

The temple made and carved out of wood. A lovely place to visit and relax. There is a bit of a climb as the cars can't go till the end but not that difficult. Worth a visit if you are in Pattaya

Work still going on but still worth the visit. Steep stairs to negotiate for those with walking difficulties.

This is the best and must place to visit in Pattaya. This is designed and carved with whole wood. Its a lifetime memory. I have never seen such a huge temple constructed with wood alone. It is just next to sea, which adds more beauty to the temple. It has got many Hindu gods as well. The entry fee is... More

We visited the Sanctuary of Truth. We did not want to pay the 500BHT entrance fee, but got the option to only pay 50THB per person to go to the observation deck. From here you could take pictures of the huge wooden sculpture. On the way to the observation deck, you walk past all the available activities, eg. horse cart... More

This place is unreal the sculpture work is out of this world and well worth the visit. But as with all places of interest there is always the add ons you can do we did the boat ride in the man made lake. A good 1/2 day to spend in Pattaya

The temple is amazing. it's been under construction for 50+ years now, with every piece of wood being hand carved and carved with an amazing amount of intricate detail. In addition to viewing the temple itself, you can visit the building nearby where the woodcarvers are working on the new pieces for the temple. An amazing place to visit.
