The Sanctuary of Truth is a tourist attraction in Pattaya, it looks like a temple, but it's really not. It's an attraction, a tourist show, a sight, a temple to wood carving skills, but not a religious temple.
I spent the New Years in Pattaya, Pattaya is normally buzzing at New Years with fireworks and music. With the King's passing, celebrations were cancelled out of respect. So instead I went to see the many tourist shows that Pattaya has to offer.
There are a lot of little things to do here, boat trips, a petty zoo, and sword fight shows to make the visit worthwhile. But the star attraction is the temple itself. This is traditional Thai craftsmanship, done by Burmese workers. As they talked, I heard both Burmese and Khmer languages, but very little Thai!
The same company that made Ancient Siam in Bangkok, made this, and this site is not as big or varied as Ancient Siam, so do that first if you get the chance.
Sanctuary of Truth is at the north end of Pattaya, easy to get to with a taxi.
