Description

Step into one of Thailand's newest and grandest temples for a journey through the world of Buddhist and Hindu magnificence amid spectacular Khmer-style design. With its vast dimensions and intricate motifs, the Sanctuary of Truth offers a look at the engineering marvels and rich culture of Thailand.

A ride from your hotel brings you to the gigantic temple, which stands 344 feet tall (105 m) at its peak and is built entirely out of wood. Covered in carved wooden imagery both without and within, the building seeks to embody the spirit of philosophical thought that shaped the country around it.

The temple's First Hall is themed around the origins of the world, depicting the 4 great elements that made up the earth. Admire representations of Hindu gods and Bodhisattvas before you visit the Second Hall and its decorations themed on the sun, moon, and stars.

In the Third Hall, themed on pure parental love, and the Fourth Hall, with its depictions of kindness, sacrifice, and sharing, the imagery describes the traditional ideals of family, society, peace, and tranquility. Take your time admiring the complex, elegant figures carved in each of the halls, and step outside to see the designs that decorate their towering spires, before your group gathers for the ride back to your hotel.

The Santuary of Truth was great and I would recommend anyone going to see. However, the transportation is another story. I reserved and corresponded TWO months prior to arriving. The email which I have stated to wait in the hotel lobby between 915 and 930 for the driver to pick us up. I was there at 915. After waiting an hour I finally haf the lobby contact about the driver. Apparently there was a “misunderstanding”. They told us at 1040 the drover would be there in 20 minutes with no explaination as to why they were late. Driver said at first he was with Uber and later changed to he was connected to the company. I dont know what the problem was but it waz very unprofessional. My time in Pattaya is limited and we had plans later that day that had to be put off by an hour. Not customer service oriented at all,
