Nice Experience

Just remember that the flooring gets really hot in the sun ... and you have to be barefoot for going inside the temple. Otherwise a very serene experience.

It's a nice place to go and see the view. You have the big Buddha and othe statues of Thai holy Shrines . We're the Thais come to pray light a candle and give a flower. It's a very nice experience. There is small shop selling the candle and the flower for about 20 baht. The view from the hill... More

We were told that we would need at least an hour for our visit, but we spent 15 minutes at most there, including prayers. It is a nice site, though, and the hilltop views of Pattaya are outstanding. It is peaceful, and tends not to be crowded. Also, the hillside neighborhood near the Buddha is quite nice. I would advise... More

Beautiful place with great outview. Entrance is free. A nice, calm and quiet contrast to busy and loud Pattaya. Worth a visit if in Pattaya.

A peaceful place away from central Pattaya. It was quiet, serene & calm. Situated on a small hill, the Buddha statue was very beautiful.

It cost us 300 bhat to get there from walking street and come back to the walking street again. It didn't have entrance fee. There was some stairs to the golden Buddha. It was not that big and was not really an art work. The view from top of the hill was nice. It took 30 minutes to visit it... More

Went to this place by myself. Just have to go straight to the end of walking street and on the mountain, and behold, lies the golden statue of big Buddha, depicting his life story... Wonderful and peaceful place

Impressive and very easy to get to, worth a trip to see it. It also had a very good view of the sea. I would go see it again
