This is quite a special structure. The wood carvings that adorn the building are hand carved and every joint is secured by dowels and pegs; not a nail in the place. The artisans are working constantly...
A temple built on the sea is like a palace of art. The entire building of the Temple of Truth was built of wooden strips. No nails were used. The temple was built for 30 years. The reason is that its owner has always strived for perfection and integrated the most exquisite wood carvings, so I think it will never have a day of completion. It is also the location of "Macau Fengyun 2". Carina Lau and Chow Yun-fat spent their honeymoon here in the movie.
A must see in Pattaya, the Sanctuary of Truth is certainly a very unique structure, even when it comes to Thai temples. Still unfinished, wood carvers chip away and carve the day away as visitors wander the grounds. The carvings are intricate, glorious, and appear menacing. It is oddly undoubtably beautiful and the stories unfolded on the walls inspire awe.
Thailand is not a wealthy country, but their happiness index can be ranked in the forefront in the world. Because of Buddhism, many people have a very peaceful attitude, so people in Thailand, though poor, live very enviable. .
This is a country where all people believe in Buddhism. It is known as the Yellow Robe Buddha. More than 95% of the country's population believes in Buddhism. The Buddha Pavilion can be seen everywhere. Whether it is the general public or the hotel restaurant, there is a place on the side of the gate that worships the Buddha or the idol. The decoration is very beautiful.
On the streets of Thailand, your sight can never be avoided, it is a temple. At present, there are more than 30,000 Buddhist temples in Thailand, with more than 50,000 monks. There are more than 400 Buddhist temples in the capital city of Bangkok. Even the headquarters of the World Buddhist Association, which has 32 member states, has its headquarters. Here, it is worthy of being a veritable capital of Buddhism.
The monks are highly respected and have a great say in all walks of life. Even royal ceremonies, national education and people's lives, etc., are all regulated by the teachings of Buddhist teachings. Moreover, it is required that at least three months before a man reaches the age of 20, almost every Thai boy has a monk experience.
In China, this impetuous society, everyone is always looking for a good time to burn incense and worship Buddha, eager for quick success, very much need the peace of mind of Thai Buddhism to neutralize, walk in these exquisite temples, let the Buddha plant Into the heart, no desire, just no fear.

sanctuary of truth
The Sanctuary of Truth (Prasat Sajja Tham) is constructed of pure mahogany and teak. It uses exquisite Thai craftsmanship to display the relationship between humans and the universe. The design style is based on traditional Asian art and the gorgeous style of dynastic Siam. The sanctuary combines religious representations from Buddhist and Hindu mythology from Thailand, India, China and Cambodia and aims to use art and culture to reflect eastern philosophy.
Adjacent to the temple, visitors can take a gondola ride, enjoy refreshments by the pond and feed elephants and goats.
