The Sanctuary of Truth

The Sanctuary of Truth - Pattaya A truly amazing sanctuary located in North Pattaya that would not surprisingly be one of the new wonders of the world. The Sanctuary of Truth was the brainchild of multimillionaire Lek "Khun Lek" Viriyaphant in 1981 and constructed on a piece of beach outcrop along the coast. The building stand 105 meters high and constructed exclusively from teak wood. The construction of the building is scheduled to complete in 2025 and depicts the influence of traditional Thai, Chinese, Indian and Khmer 17th century sculpting styles. 

The concept of the Sanctuary depicts ancient wisdom in a fast corrupting world which embraces materialism, lust and wontoness. It portrays the endowment of spiritual values to leading a life towards utopia by showing respect and honoring the relationship of humans to the universe. The seven elements of creation and human respect values lie in the relationship between the father, the mother, earth, sky, sun, moon and stars. The intricate carvings and sculptures are divided into 4 sections and 7 boards. Each board depicts a reflection of different teaching in the values of life. It is said that visiting this Sanctuary will invoke thoughts of "Ancient Life, Human Responsibility, Basic Thought, Cycle of living, Life Relationship with Universe and Common Goal of Life toward Utopia" through Eastern Philosophy, Ancient Visions of Earth and Knowledge. 

Most of the stories depicted in the carvings are derived from the Mahabharta and Ramayana that instill teachings ofgood overcoming evil in the way our lives are lead. It is the foundation stone for religious belief in traditional Chinese Buddhism and Hinduism which has been embraced into Thai Buddhism beliefs. The entrance fee of THB500 for adults and THB250 for children below 140cm is a worthwhile price to pay for having the opportunity to see this enchanting sanctuary. It is definitely a "must not miss" place to go to when you are in Pattaya.
