It's time to mention this magic piece of Thai culture, architecture and religion.
July 1st, 2020 the SoT after few months is again reopened for visitors.
Originality of interior and exterior design is not complete without fact that building was built without using nails.
When I last year visited SoT, construction works were ongoing. That's why visitors must wear helmets.
Address: 206/2 Moo 5, Soi Naklua 12 , Naklua, Banglamung, Chonburi 20150
Prices: vary - 440 THB or 19.90 USD (online)
One of the "must see" while in Pattaya!
The Sanctuary of Truth Museum is owned and was designed by Mr. Lek Viriyahphan.
- Date of Establishment : August 13, 1981
- Objectives : 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.
- Features : A Thai-styled jaturamuk woodcarving castle. The central apex is 105 meters tall, 100 meters wide at the 4 directions.
- Materials : The 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.
