Temple of Truth

The Temple of Truth was initiated by a businessman from Thailand in 1981. It is still being built and will be completed in 2025. It is mainly built with wood and it is full of religious and philosophical depictions of Truth.

This temple does not represent any religion but it is an amalgam of national and religious traditions evident in Thailand, mainly Hindi, Khmer, Chinese and Thai. It has representing images mainly from the Buddhist and Hindu religions and mythologies of Cambodia, India and Thailand. The idea behind this Temple is to promote the understanding of Ancient Life, Human Responsibility, Basic Thought, Cycle of Living, Life Relationship with Universe and Common Goal of Life toward Utopia.
I believe that the existence of this Temple is important for everyone in the modern epoch since it is a virtue which has been quoted by many wise people and believed by many, through religion, through philosophy, through life, but which has been today misplaced and left aside...Maybe one day we will wonder like the philosophers and will question what is and what isn't True in our lives..
