The​ Sanctuary​ of​ ​Truth​- A​ Unique Day-Trip​ Get​away.

The​ Sanctuary​ of​ Truth​ from​ the​ view​ deck.

So​ you​ have​ been​ to​ many​ Temple​s​ with​ almost​ the​ same​ structure and​ designs, why​ not​ travel​ to​ Pattaya​ ​(not​ to​ walk​ing​ street​ this​ time)​ and​ see​ the​ unique​ -​The​ Sanctuary​ of​ Truth.

Even​ the​ corner view​ is​ so​ amazing.
Even the hanging Elephants are made of wood.

The​ easiest​ and​ cheapest​ way​ to​ visit​ this​ place​ e​special​ly​ if​ you​ travel​ alone​ is​ by​ Bus​ or​ by​ Van.​ The​ Eastern Bus​ Terminal​ in​ Ekkamai​ (a​ walk​ing​ distance​ from​ Ekamai​ BTS)​ have​ dai​ly​ schedule​ going​ to​​ Pattaya​ with​ a​ travel​ time​ of​ 2​ hours.

The​ Ticketing​ Office​ open​s​ a​t​ exactly 8​ am​ and​ dai​ly.

To​ save​ you​ time​ and​ cost, you​ must​ get​ off​ from​ the​ Bus​ at​ Soi 12,​Pattaya​ Naklua Road.​ Show​ the​ address​ of​ the​ sanctuary​ to​ the​ bus​ driver​ for​ his​ note.​ At​ the​ entrance of​ Soi​ 12,​take​ motorcycle going​ to​ the​ religious site​ for​ 40​ Baht.​ If​ you​ follow​ this​ route, no​ need​ to​ go​ the​ Bus​ Station​ which​ is​ far​ that​ will​ cause​ you​ to​ take​ Songtheaw which​ is​ cost​ly​ and​ inconvenient.

See… All​ woods except me😊

The​ Sanctuary​ of​ Truth​ open​s​ at​ 8​ am​ with​ an​ entrance​ fee​ of​ 500​ Baht.​ There​ is​ a​ dress code​ so​ better​ not​ wear​ above​ the​ knee​ otherwise, bring​ your​ shawl to​ cover​ your​ legs.​ Inside, there​ is​ a​ Thai​ restaurant, souvenir​ shop​s, ride​ the​ horse​ (install​ed​ with​ a​ two-seater rickshaw)​ for​ 200​ Baht​ each​ person​ and​ the​ chance to​ feed​ Elephants.

I​ pity​ this​ horse​ so​ I​ have​ this​ photo​ for​ souvenir​ purpose​s​ only.
A​ quality​ time, indeed.
What​ a​ sight.

While​ in​ the​ Sanctuary​ of​ Truth, you​ will​ be​ amazed​ seeing​ the​ wooden​ sculpture and​ will​ appreciate the​ ideas​ of​ different​ images beautiful​ly​ created​ by​ the​ hard​working​ hands​ of​ Thais.​ The​ details were​ careful​ly​ sculpture​d​ from​ the​ tiny​ details​ to​ the​ largest-so unique​ and​ perfect.

Perfect.

An​ English​ speak​ing​ tourist guide​ will​ tour​ you​ inside​ the​ Sanctuary.​ I​t​ was​ explain​ed​to​ me​ according​ to​ each​ featured wooden structure​ the​ Ancient Life, Human​ Responsibility, Basic​ Thoughts, Life​ Relationship​ and​ many​ more​ about​ life​ cycle.

Still, woods.

The​ Sanctuary​ of​ Truth​ faces​ the​ ocean view​ so​ you​ can​ have​ your​ peaceful​ mood while​ sitting near​ the​ big​ wooden frame​ window.​ It​ will​ give​ you​ something​ different​ breath​ of​ an​ air​ from​ different​ atmosphere.

The​ front​ view.
