Big Buddha, Phuket Overview

Big Buddha is a 45 m high statue of Buddha visible from miles away showcasing an impressive e work of craftsmanship and dedication.

Nestled high up on the famous peak of Phuket above Chalong Bay, the 45 meters high Big Buddha or officially known, as Ming Mongkol is one of a major and newest tourist spot of the island. Completely funded by public donations, the statue was under construction for a very long time. Now that it has been completed, an up-close visit to this idol completely crafted out of white marble is worth oneÍs time. As you reach the top, a remarkable awe-inspiring sight of the islandÍs southern coast and Andaman Sea awaits you. If the visit is well timed you will be treated with fabulous sunset as well. Another beautiful Buddha statue, a bit smaller made entirely of brass is also an impressive sight. The place is a temple greatly revered by local and of high significance to Thai Buddhists, so be respectful of the templeÍs customs.
