Buddha Mountain in Pattaya
Buddha Mountain, also known as Khao Chee Chan, is located 23.8 km by road to the south of Walking Street in Pattaya. Buddha Mountain features a 109 metre tall by 70 metre wide image of the Lord Buddha carved into the side of a rock face created as consequence of mining for building materials during the Vietnam War. Buddha Mountain is open to visitors daily from 08:00 to 17:00 and admission is free. There are toilets, and food and drink vendors, in the large car park attached to the temple by Buddha Mountain.
The Buddha image was created in 1996 to mark the 50th anniversary of King Rama IX’s accession to the throne. The image was created using lasers following a computerised plan. After the grooves forming the outline were cut they were filled in by hand with gold leaf, a process which took months, to create the finished image. The image is in the style of Buddha statues created during the Sukhothai period, 1238 to 1438, which is famous for being a time when some of the most beautiful Buddha statues in Thailand, such as the Phra Phuttha Chinnarat statue at Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat in Phitsanulok, were created.
