Big Buddha Temple, Pattaya

4.3
Head up the dragon-lined staircase to the seat of Big Buddha Temple, a bright gold figure standing 18 m (59 ft) tall. Offerings, incense, decorations, and bells surround the striking statue. Learn about Buddhism at the temple through the historical information provided, then look around the hilltop site to see Buddhas in other poses. The staircase up to the plateau is attractive in itself for its decorative flourishes, and does not ascend too steeply for most visitors.

  • Big Buddha temple. A peaceful place . Good ambience . Clam and clean. So many Buddha statues are there. When ever we go there we feel some peace. A must visit place in Pattaya city
  • Loved the dragons 🐉. This place is awesome in pattaya. Almost every city has a big Buddha in Thailand 🇹🇭. You can see the beach from the very top. Many travelers visit this place. It’s a little walk up the hill, but always get a motorcycle 🏍. I was able to take good photos and enjoy the day.
