Photographer's Note

Somebody said me that these builders of the Sanctuary of Truth are from Myanmar. Probably, it is just an economic reason.
See in WS another photo from the temple.

The building of Sanctuary of Truth was constructed according to ancient Thai originality and every square inch of the building is covered with wooden carve sculpture. The purposes of decoration with wooden carve sculptures are to use art and culture as the reflection of 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.

Man cannot be born and exist without seven creators. Sanctuary of Truth, Pattaya presents seven creators through carved wood sculptures which adorn its interior. They are Heaven, Earth, Father, Mother, Moon, Sun and Stars. On top of the four spires of the Sanctuary of Truth, Pattaya, the four elements that will lead to the ideal world according to eastern philosophy are presented.
