The huge white marble statue of Buddha is no less impressive itself than the breathtaking view from the hill on which it is situated.
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.
