Route 1: Sanctuary of Truth

The Sanctuary of Truth is a wood sanctuary build by Mr.Lek Viriyaphan the founder of ancient city and Erawan elephant museum. The Sanctuary of Truth is the largest wood building in Thailand that use only wood to build it as the ancient Thai carpenter style. Inside this sanctuary there are wood statue and wood carving piece that tell the philosophy of life. The art style use in sanctuary is the benevolent one that has to be called one of the master piece in this era. The Sanctuary of Truth is one of the tourist attractions that got a Thailand best travel industrial reward in 2008.

This one-of-a-kind giant wooden construction is a truly awe-inspiring sanctuary which illustrates the Ancient Vision of Earth, Ancient Knowledge, and Eastern Philosophy. Within this complex, visitors can gain an understanding of Ancient Life, Human Responsibility, Basic Thought, the Cycle of Life, Life’s Relationship with Universe and a Common Goal of Life toward Utopia. It is a beautiful and humbling demonstration of human endeavour and skill, particularly when you realise that none of the wood used has been treated or chemically protected. This means that, as one section is completed, another has succumbed to the tropical conditions and must be replaced.


Route 2: Wat Yanasangvararam & Khao Chi Chan

Wat Yanasangvararam, a Buddhist monastery under the royal patronage of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara, the 19th Supreme Patriarch of the Thai Sangha, initiated and oversaw the construction of this monastery which subsequently received the name of ‘Yanasangvararam’ after the ecclesiastic title of the Supreme Patriarch. It was His Holiness Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara’s goal to have Wat Yanasangvararam constructed as a Vipassana meditation training center close to Bangkok and to become the Buddhist monastery for the reign of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. It was for the latter reason that great efforts and painstaking care were devoted to its construction to make sure that the monastery is absolutely magnificent, impeccable, elegant and complementary to the grandeur of the Thai monarchy. The monastery compound is divided into four sections.

Khao Chi Chan is another famous tourist attraction in Chonburi. There is a Buddha image carved on a rock cliff in the form of the largest Buddha image in the world to be the Buddha image of the reign of King Rama IX to offer as a merit on the 50th anniversary of the reign of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej Maha Bhumibol Adulyadej is a seated Buddha image in the attitude of subduing Mara, imitating the Buddha image of the Buddha image in Sukhothai and Lanna style with the height of 109 meters.
