Big Buddha in Phuket

Place name: Big Buddha

This temple complex was founded in 2002, but its construction is still under way. The Great Buddha Himself sits on a hill Nakaked and can be seen from a far distance. No wonder, as the white marble statue is 45 meters high!

Nearby there is another Buddha statue made of copper, but it is considerably smaller – just 12 meters in height. The statues are erected in honor of the living King and Queen of Thailand. There is also a museum dedicated to the history of the temple there, and a place where you can buy a souvenir, the money for which will go to the construction of the temple.

Region: Phuket, Thailand

Location: Soi Muang

Open hours: daily from 08:00 am to 08:00 pm
