Visit The Sanctuary Of Truth, an atmospheric, intricately carved Buddhist temple. Started in 1981 and still under construction, the wooden place of worship features ornate images, reliefs, and statues. With an intensive attention to detail and a sensitive balancing of contemporary aesthetics and traditional architecture, there's plenty to appreciate about this work in progress--so don't let its completion date of 2050 put you off.

And amazingly large structure. It is truly a unique and one-of-a-kind place that you can easily spend 2 hours at. Especially if you appreciate the craftsmanship involved in its construction. the staff are friendly and very helpful and are happy to accommodate taking photos of you. The temple is in a constant state of construction, with upwards of 40 Craftsmen chiseling away at the walls and pillars. Hard hats in the work area are provided. The temple grounds has restaurants and attractions for children, elephant rides, a petting zoo, and more. A nice place to visit in the early morning or afternoon, but be sure to dress appropriately.
The most picturesque place that you should visit once in your lifetime. A must visit place and the only one all wood sculpture building in the whole world.It's a massive temple carved out of wood.This building is incredible. It is all hand-carved wood, perpetually being finished and refinished. The detail in literally every step is exquisite, fabulous. And the oceanside setting is gorgeous. Well worth the visit and admission price. Very good place built for a very good cause. The founder was a business man who had a vision for world peace, so he funded this all wooden structure which has 5 halls each with unique theme and story behind the carvings.
