The Sanctuary of Truth: A trip in Thailand

We found an amazing place of art in Thailand. Ancient Arts and history are two things which can mesmerize me. Hasib, my husband always try to find something or place 1911626_10153912567080122_1934512114_nwhich must be enchanted! And, I tell you secretly that he doesn’t like the historical place, fort, palace or art, trust me. So, in our Pattaya trip, he found one of the most beautiful Pattaya tourist attraction which had an authentic Thai look which was spellbound me! And trust me, if you like ancient art or want to grasp the nature, you have to visit this place.

We actually hired a taxi. In fact, I would say it is the most beautiful building in Pattaya.The Sanctuary of Truth!  A 105 meters high wooden palace which is covered in sculptures based on traditional Buddhist and Hindu motifs. Entrance is 500 Baht. Viewed from the inside and the outside of this temple shaped building was really outstanding for us. Although this isn’t a traditional Thai temple, it is a religious building and does contain some Buddha images so visitors should dress respectfully and cover knees and shoulders.

Don’t forget your camera! Why? Because this is wonderfully photogenic.
