Thsis is not very far from the walking Street. The Place is absolutely serene and tranquill. You can sit down in peace and meditate for hours. Beautiful View of the Pattaya Bay Shoreline from the adjacent view point. Must visit location once in Pattaya.

We were travelling in Pattaya with my family and realized we hadn't gone to any that cultural places in Thailand, so we decided to head for the Big Buddha. It was on a small hill in between Jomtien Beach and Pattaya City and was easily accessible by the baht busses. The temple itself was cool but nothing breathtaking. The view of the Jomtien side was cool though!

With the hype about this temple and monument, one expects it to be bigger than it is.

With the exception of the main Buddha, there is not too much to see, although the views from the terrace out over Pattaya are great.

Ladies, no shoe string tops or shorts allowed, but free, albeit slightly smelly sarongs are offered to you on loan so that you can go up the steps.

No entrance fee here although donations are encouraged.
