The last of the temples is a building that, while technically not a temple, it certainly deserves to be on this list since it is the tallest wooden construction in the country, and maybe even in the world.
The Sanctuary of Truth is located in Pattaya, on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand. The wooden construction is 100 meters high and, true to the Buddhist concept that everything is always changing, the sanctuary has been under construction for almost 40 years and continues as of 2021.
Visitors will find many figures from Thai, Indian, Hindu, Buddhist, and Chinese traditions, including mermaids, elephants, dragons, angels and demons.
The whole place is built using traditional techniques so nails were not used to hold the beams in place. The Chinese, Indian, Khmer and Thai ornaments create a fascinating religious syncretism in the architecture of the sanctuary.
