Wonderful views, interesting and nice touch you can buy and write a message on tile which is then used to complete the Buddha.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Unfortunately a long way before it is finished inside and out . There is scaffolding on the outside where marble tiles are being placed to finish the surface. There is also work being done inside but at present can't enter.Great view on clear day

“The Big Buddah is a beautiful and serene place to visit.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Whilst the Big Buddah is currently being renovated and is covered on scaffolding, it is still visable and a very interesting place to visit.
Make sure you get blessed by one of the monks and he will tie a band onto your wrist for good luck.
