A Must Visit Temple! If your near or passing by Pattaya in Thailand
In all honesty in my opinion the only thing worth seeing and going to Pattaya for. Excerpt from Wikipedia "Sanctuary of Truth also called Wang Boran and Prasat Mai[1])....The sanctuary is an all-wood building filled with sculptures based on traditional Buddhist and Hindu motifs. The building is close to 105 meters (345 feet) high.... It features contemporary Visionary art based on traditional religious themes. The project was initiated as an idea of Thai businessman Lek Viriyaphant in 1981, and is scheduled to be complete in 2025." "The style of the Sanctuary evokes Khmer architecture, displaying hand-carved wooden sculptures indicative of the imperial setting at Angkor. It has four gopura, respectively representing images from the Buddhist and Hindu religions and mythologies of Cambodia, China, India and Thailand.[1] According to the official website, its purpose is to use art and culture as "a reflection of the Ancient Vision of Earth, Ancient Knowledge, and Eastern Philosophy. Within this complex, visitors will understand Ancient Life, Human Responsibility, Basic Thought, Cycle of living, Life Relationship with Universe and Common Goal of Life toward Utopia".[3]" www.sanctuaryoftruth.com/ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanctuary_of_Truth All images Images by _Copyright©Sky_Iouan
