Pattaya is not just a place where the party never ends but also has some wonderful places to go sightseeing and soak in some culture.

There are thousands of temples around the world but none quite like the Sanctuary of Truth it stands an impressive 100 meters high and covers 3200 sq meters, most look alike with two or three tiers on the top, but this sacred temple is built of wood and no cement or metal has been used.

It is based at the very north point of Pattaya situated by the sea at laeem, ratchawet on na klua road soi 12.

With countless detailed sculptures based on traditional Buddhist motifs it is absolutely amazing, the art and craft that went into building such a master piece is mind blowing!

The Sanctuary of Truth

The sculptures represent ancient vision of the world, ancient knowledge, and eastern philosophy.

Work began on the temple in 1981 and is still yet to be complete, you will see workers doing carvings around the temple, and most have come from Cambodia and Myanmar.

To enter the temple it costs 500 baht for adults and 250 baht for children with a height between 110-140 cm (different) also there are other packages that can be taken advantage of once you arrive, such as a sightseeing boat tour offering panoramic views on the ocean with a free complimentary coconut drink once on board, for just an extra 200 baht.

Other activities are available such as elephant riding, quad biking, a dolphin training show at 11:30am and 15:30pm and a Thai dancing / fighting show which i found very entertaining.

So not only is it a temple with culture and cream of the crop art work it is also a fun day out for all ages.

There is quite a few steps to the Sanctuary of Truth itself but once you have reached inside it is well worth the effort!

The Sanctuary of Truth

The sanctuary of Truth is not too far from central Pattaya, but probably a bit too far to walk. I suggest grabbing a taxi or motorbike taxi. Depending on traffic it may take 10-20 mins to get there.

I’m so glad i made the effort to go and visit this place and would recommend any one to go and have a look.
