Amazing all wood religious structure.
Truth Sanctuary Pattaya Thailand
Truth Sanctuary Pattaya Thailand was initiated by a Thai businessman Lek Viriyaphant in 1981, and is scheduled to be completed in 2050. The sanctuary is an all-wood building filled with sculptures based on traditional Buddhist and Hindu motifs. Credit to Wikipedia.
The actual name is Sanctuary of Truth, however search engines such as Google etc don’t like “stop words” such as of or the, these have an adverse effect on how they rate a blog.
Buy a ticket at the gate for B500 or $16 USD.
Steep stairs take you down to the Sanctuary.
Going down is fine though I was a little out of breath climbing back to the top. Then again it was a piece of cake when you compare it to the 811 steps I faced in Vung Tao South Vietnam a couple of years ago visiting the statue of Christ. Follow THIS LINK for the full story.
It’s a fair hike to get to the Sanctuary,
Elephant rides are available here.
