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
