Entrance ticket is required but we managed to get it at a cheaper price with the help from our driver. The wooden temple was simply magnificent. The view of it from far or near distance were both marvellous. Some repair/construction work was been carrying out during our visit, so we were given safety helmet before getting near the temple.

Beautiful. Must see attraction in Pattaya. They give you a walk through of how the sculptures are made and attached to the main structure, as well as a general tour of the temple. Additionally, during the tour I learned a lot about Thailand's Buddhism, which is a blend of Buddhism and Hinduism with some influence from Chinese religious as well.... More

There are amazing different wooden carve sculptures which were hand made. They are unique artwork which use art and culture as the reflection of Ancient history.

Dont be deceived this is a building under construction!! We were told the ancient techniques are no longer available in Thai so the main builders are bought in from Burma. Regardless an amazing place make sure you walk around it and right through it. Arrange to have your baht bus take you all the way down the steps are killers!

Will never forget our first view of the roof top. The wooden carvings are fantastic, always something different to see everywhere you look. Please don't support the elephant rides, I saw them being hit with a pick type tool to control them. Everything else is great though.

we visited the sanctuary of truth on our visit to Thailand the price was 400 baht per person and the trip would have been better if the torrential rain hadn't visited when we did,,, the sanctuary has amazing wooden carvings and the detail has to be seen to be believed

We visited on a rather poor day weatherwise but the place is nevertheless unbelievable. We got the bahtbus from dolphin roundabout and had a 20 minute walk from the end of Soi 12 (I believe). I do not believe we saw the best of this place due to the weather, but we saw enough to be mightily impressed.
