Sanctuary of truth - Pattaya

This wooden building was instigated by a wealthy Thai businessman 40 years ago and is still unfinished! It's full of beautiful wooden carvings that reflect Hindu and Buddhist culture and specialists from Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos are involved in the intricate carvings. 

Because it is situated next to the sea, some of the original work has had to be replaced because of salt damage - a project that will never be completed?
