I personally love my wood work and this place is all hand calved and you can actually see them at work as it is still incomplete. I have now been here on 2 occasions and would say I would go again

If you bring visitors to Pattaya, this is a MUST seen place. I am still not OK with the fact, that Thai and Farang with Thai paper (licence, workpermit) pay such a high price but it is worthwhile.

That was so glorious We hadn't enough time for visiting all around because the collection is closed at 6 pm.

I can just talk for myself. Not my type, nor did I find the worth & money. Though I guess many would find it interesting.

Despite a rather scary walk down to the Sanctuary it was well worth it. The workmanship is amazing and is still ongoing

The name "Sanctuary of Truth" simulates a religious meaning, which is simply wrong. The building is in truth a kind of exhibition about wood carving in Thailand. Numerous motives of traditional Thai wood carving art usual to find in temples and sanctuaries was copied here....More

You can catch a baht bus along Nukla road and then catch a motorcycle taxi or walk.
I purchased two tickets on line on 21 February 2017, the money has been taken out of my account but I have not received the tickets by email. Despite numerous emails I have sent on the contact details on the official website I have received no response. We are flying to Thailand in 3 days and I wanted this resolved. Thank you.
