Big Buddha, Pattaya Reviews

  • Brilliant Buddha Idol atop a hill with magnificent views. The temple is atop a small hill accessible by small steps leading to the same. On the backside of the temple, one can view the ocean as well as the skyline of Pattaya City, especially the view of Pattaya Park Tower. Dragons adorn the flight of stairs. There are several Buddha idols here, depicting different forms. It's a soothing place to be

  • On the very top of Pratumnak Hill, between Pattaya and Jomtien Beach, you can’t fail to notice an enormous 18 meters tall Buddha popping up through the trees. This temple was built in the 1940s when Pattaya was nothing more than a fishing village. This Pattaya attraction is extremely popular with tour groups who love to see the intricate design of the statue and the temple complex, but it is also revered by local people who come to pray at the temple. Entry to the temple is free of cost. This is one of the best places to visit in Pattaya. Highlights: At the top of the hill you can take pictures near the many Buddha figures in different postures, which are representative of different days of the week. Before you get to the top of the hill your eye will catch hoards of vendors selling caged birds, a symbol of Thailand where you have set them free and gain good Karma.

  • No ticket required. Enormous Buddha Statue and many other smaller statues here. If you enjoy something very Thai, this place is a nice choice. It's on a hill and you can't catch a taxi from here. So better deal price for a round trip with the driver.

  • This is a very beautiful Buddha Temple located in Pattaya. It's a walk to uphill that the temple is located. The view from here of Pattaya city is very nice. Very soothing and Calming place. If you are done With The Walking Street. Then this is the place to calm you down. Must visit place for people who are looking for serenity and calmness.

  • Great place to visit for the temple as such and also to enjoy a panoramic view of pataya beach. Lively golden colour of the temple is an attraction. Ample parking available and public toilets are clean
