One of the highlights in Pattaya. Nice place to walk around and good views of the water and city. Worth walking there, rather than taking a mini-bus. You see other parts of the city and the area around the hill. Allow at least 30 minutes to enjoy the place.

I really like the place and the view. It gives me peace there. Evening time is really awesome there. You can stay there for 2 hours and take a view of pattaya.

This temple is well worth a visit when you're in Pattaya. It's a peaceful place away from the noise and hustle of the city. The temple grounds are quite large so you can easily spend an hour or more here. There are many impressive statues, the largest being the big Buddha statue at the top. While at the top there... More

Very memorable and beautiful place of worship. The big buddha statue is breathtaking and once you are on the top of the hill there is magnificent view of Pattaya and Jomtien.

Nice view over the city. Several statues of the different aspects of the Buddha. Occasional religious services are held here, but those who are respectfully visiting should not have any obstruction.

There were a few Buddha statues throughout the area. There was also a big (I want to call it store?) that sold all types of souvenirs. There was also a Buddhist who would say a prayer for you (the queue was quite long so we didnt wait). Once you get up to the actual Buddha statue, there is not much... More

A fine example of Thai reverence to Buddha. Located at the top of Pratumnak Hill, this is the holy site with views over the whole of Pattaya. It really is a 'must visit' location for anyone coming to the town.
