So you have been to many Temples with almost the same structure and designs, why not travel to Pattaya (not to walking street this time) and see the unique -The Sanctuary of Truth.
The easiest and cheapest way to visit this place especially if you travel alone is by Bus or by Van. The Eastern Bus Terminal in Ekkamai (a walking distance from Ekamai BTS) have daily schedule going to Pattaya with a travel time of 2 hours.
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 costly and inconvenient.
The Sanctuary of Truth opens 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 shops, ride the horse (installed with a two-seater rickshaw) for 200 Baht each person and the chance to feed Elephants.
While in the Sanctuary of Truth, you will be amazed seeing the wooden sculpture and will appreciate the ideas of different images beautifully created by the hardworking hands of Thais. The details were carefully sculptured from the tiny details to the largest-so unique and perfect.
An English speaking tourist guide will tour you inside the Sanctuary. It was explainedto me according to each featured wooden structure the Ancient Life, Human Responsibility, Basic Thoughts, Life Relationship and many more about life cycle.
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.
