The Sanctuary of Truth!






The Sanctuary of Truth is not like most of the other monumental projects located in Thailand. Most of these projects are undertaken by temples and are community-based in nature, but this Sanctuary is completely different when it comes to tourist attractions in Pattaya.


The Sanctuary of Truth in PattayaThere is an eccentric billionaire in Thailand known as Khun Lek that has undertaken numerous monumental projects of this nature including the Ancient City as well as a huge art museum that is shaped like the mythical Erawan, a three-headed Elephant.The Sanctuary of Truth is another one of his projects, a temple-like structure found near Pattaya. 250 woodworkers worked on carving this wooden sanctuary. The overall shape of the architecture follows traditional architecture of Thailand, and the temple is also richly detailed using wood carvings that depict four major artistic and philosophical influences of Thailand culture, which are Thai, Khmer, Hindu and Chinese. The building has been a work in progress for many years.

If you are looking for things to do in Pattaya, it would be well worthwhile to visit this amazing tourist attraction.



Of all the things to do in Pattaya, this is perhaps the most detailed and intricate thing to see. Although many places to visit in Pattaya are tourism oriented, this one is focused on architecture, culture and history and so it will give valuable insight into the culture of the region. If you are looking for what to do in Pattaya, you should definitely visit this unique temple-style monument and the Thai, Hindu, Khmer and Chinese details that have influenced its motifs and architecture. Every detail is painstakingly hand carved for a completely unique and distinct destination.


The entrance fee is 500 Baht or $16 USD. You can reach the Sanctuary temple by way of the second Road from Pattaya, which becomes Naklua's main street. It is recommended to use a “Tuk Tuk” or some other form of motor transportation, as it is quite a long walk to the temple itself from Pattaya.
