This is an interesting attraction, it is a beautiful big Buddha and I wouldn't miss it because its location allows you to see the whole city since it is on top of a hill.

You want to walk at-least 200 steps to reach this place. But you can do it easily. This is very special place for Buddhist peoples. No other special things inside for others except sea view..
