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 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.
