Big Buddha Temple, Pattaya

#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Pattaya
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.
  • Exactly as advertised! A shrine complex with one huge Buddha, along with a collection of smaller, very diverse Buddha’s. There are many opportunities to make offerings or pray. There are also panoramic views of Pattaya at the far end of the central platform. Bring plenty of change and smaller Baht bills to make offerings at different shrines on the grounds. I took a tuktuk there and back, 150 baht each way.
  • It's a wonderful place to visit. Very clean and calm atmosphere. God with beautiful nature views.
  • Nice place to visit with family. You can find more different statue's and buildings. Also if you are looking to take a nice picture that is a Best placy
