Sanctuary of Truth Museum is the only all-wood temple in the world located at the relaxing Rachvate cape of Naklua Pattaya City.
Visitors can take advantage of the photo opportunities, watch the plays and shows, join the events and dine in the nearby local restaurant that holds the viewpoint of the meticulously wood carved Sanctuary of Truth. The experience is once-in-a-lifetime as knowledge about arts and philosophy of goodness is offered during the tour. Created in the reign of King Rama IX, the contemporary architecture and grand castle were built by ancient wood-joining techniques that are unseen elsewhere in the world.
This national and global heritage was built by Mr. Lek Viriyahphan in 1981 who also founded the Ancient City and the Erawan Museum in Samut Prakan. He aimed to highlight the significance of religious philosophies that promote sustainability of the world through spirituality and strong piety in arts or moral and cultures – teaching humans to do good and avoid bad. The Thai-styled jaturamuk woodcarving castle is made of hardwood such as takien thong, pradu, daeng, teng and gold teakwood. To maintain the wood quality, CCA liquids (bronze, lead and arsenic acid) have been applied. The whole castle is without a metal single nail. Woods are joined together through the Thai traditional wood-joining techniques – tongue and groove (wedge) techniques.
