Buddha Mountain (Khao Chi Chan) , Pattaya


One of the largest Buddha images in the world

One of Pattaya’s most noticeable landmarks is the 130 meters high Buddha Mountain. A huge golden Buddha image is set on the mountain, which is also called Khao Cheejan that can be seen from miles away.

The Buddha image that is officially called Phra Phuttha Maha Wachira Uttamopat Satsada was created in 1996 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s accession the the throne.

The Buddha image was carved out of the cliff using laser technology. After that, it was inlaid with gold leaf, a process that took months to complete. The impressive Sukhothai era Buddha image is 130 meters high and 70 meters wide, making it one of the biggest Buddha images in the world.

Buddha Mountain, which is also called Khao Cheejan or Khao Chee Chan, is set in beautifully landscaped gardens. There is a number of salas (open pavilions) and pools filled with lotus flowers giving the place a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere.

There is also a number of shrines where Thai people come to pay homage. A number of signs in English language provide information about the history of the place.


the work put into this attraction is incredible-all gold carved into the rockface,tranquil and peaceful just to sit in awe and think peacefull thoughts,nice experience....
