The Sanctuary of Truth is a gigantic wooden structure rising 105 metres into the sky and fully carved out of teak. Conceived by the same tycoon who commissioned the construction of Erawan Museum and The Ancient City in Bangkok, this one is a strange fusion of religion, philosophy, art and culture.
It is neither a temple, nor palace, even though it looks a bit like a hybrid of both. Best described as a monument to Thai craftsmanship, and a place to reflect, its awe-inspiring wooden sculptures and cravings pays homage to and is a reflection of the “Ancient Vision of Earth’, “Ancient Knowledge’ and “Eastern Philosophy’. It is also the only place in Thailand where you can get up close and personal with two delightful and very playful dolphins.
