The Sanctuary of Truth, Pattaya
Thailand

The Sanctuary of Truth is a gigantic wooden construction which covers  the area of more than two rais. The top point of the building is  about 105 meters high.  It was constructed to withstand the wind and sunshine on the seashore at Rachvate Cape, Tumbon Naklea, Amphur Banglamung, Chon Buri Province.

The building was constructed according to ancient Thai ingenuity

and every square inch of the building is covered with wooden carve sculpture. The purposes of decoration with wooden carve sculptures are to use art and culture as the reflection of Ancient Vision of Earth, Ancient  Knowledge,  and  Eastern Philosophy. With in this complex, visitors  will  understand  Ancient  Life,  Human  Responsibility, Basic Thought, Cycle of living, Life Relationship with Universe and Common Goal of Life toward Utopia.

The Sanctuary of Truth has been under construction for over 25 years. It will take about 15 more years to finish its construction. Why does it take this long? To build a wooden structure as large and detailed as this, go through many processes. It is never finish because there always the maintaining parts that has already been done. So the process is finishing it and maintaining it. You’d have to see for yourself how large and detailed it is.
From the outside, it’s really appealing because you’d wonder what this place is. It doesn’t look that large from outside, but once inside you’ll feel small, because of the size of structure members and sculpture are huge. The sculpture and statues are from ancient eastern philosophy about life relationship with universe and common goal of life towards utopia. It is scary, because you’d feel all the statues are looking at you.  
Surrounding the wooden structure is the sea and a garden with a sea water lake. By the lake there are scheduled dolphin shows and dolphin feeding. There are also horse riding and horse carriage offered to ride around the area.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
