The sanctuary of truth

The Sanctuary of Truth in Thailand is the largest and arguably the most beautiful wood-carved structure in the world. This awe-inspiring 105-meter-tall building is built entirely of wood. Not a single nail has been used in its construction, making it a truly remarkable one-of-a-kind structure.

Part temple, part museum, part workshop, part art gallery, the beauty of the intricately carved Sanctuary is almost impossible to describe. It’s an amazing work of art – and has to be seen to be believed.

Even though The Sanctuary (Thai name – The Prasat Sajja Tham) is to be completed in 2050 (construction began in 1981), it is still regarded as the most impressive building in Pattaya.

The sanctuary is divided into four theme halls: India, China, Cambodia and Thailand. The four elements – Fire, Earth, Air and Water – are depicted on the four walls of the Indian Hall. The majestic columns dating back several hundred years protect the sanctuary from evil spirits. The Chinese Hall is distinguished by the beautiful statues of Buddha that remind us of his higher karmic purpose in his human incarnation. In the Thai Hall you can see the seven Avatar statues symbolizing the seven days of the week. There you can also use a special table to find out the day of the week you were born.
