The Sanctuary of Truth, Pattaya

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.
