    Beautiful experience
    I went to Big Buddha temple on my second day and it was a beautiful experience. We did the blessings with two monks were they tie the coloured string and presented a monks robe and did a water ritual. It is a great view and afterwards great to go to the nearby monument for food and a smoothly.

    Great inspiring and enjoyable place on top of Pattaya
    Great view at he entire Pattaya Bay and Jomtien ! Feeling the importance and the spirit of Buddha all over the place with his rich offerings of Buddha sculptures. Kids enjoyed the tradition to place and throw the coins. Back down we got yhe blessing by the monk and left happy and inspired! We will be back.

    Avani Pattaya Golfing
    We went on a organised golf trip to Pattaya and played some of the best courses in Thailand. On our rest days we arranged a visit to the Big Buddha. We organised a private hotel car with driver for the trip which was the best option. The visit to the Big Buddha was fine but would recommend a visit to The Sanctuary of Truth. Be aware of the high humidity and have plenty of water.

    The Secret Garden was a discovery!
    I took a motorcycle taxi from Jomtien Beach to The Statue and Gardens. The Buddhas are stunning,but, right below the Temple was a closed off, unkempt Garden. Like a secret, i couldnt resist crossing the barriers! Im glad I did!

    Beautiful
    Amazing view. Very pretty temple. I think the trinkets you could buy were a little overpriced. I came across a night market later on and could find the same items for a less expensive price.

    Gorgeous Big Buddha
    We took a 4 hour private tour for our group of 5. The Big Buddha Temple was our first stop. The Budha statue is tall and at the center at the end of a walking path with many steps. There are several other Buddha statues in the area too. At the back, the view of Pattaya city is great. The Big Buddha Temple is a must visit place in Pattaya.

This primary attraction of this temple is the 18m tall golden statue of the Buddha as well as the beautiful Naga balustrades that guard the entrance to the steps up to the statue. There are also smaller statues at the top behind the big buddha depicting the life of Gautama including his life as a mendicant and his mother's dream.

Worth a visit, not as impressive as the huge Buddha in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but something to do whilst in Pattaya and there is shelter if it rains!!

Well worth the visit, if you are in or around Pattaya. This was a quick stop off on the way to another excursion, we only stayed about 30 minutes, but it was truly awesome

Very nice. Close to downtown. Free to enter. Ladies must cover knees and shoulders. Only one half to one hour to see. Easy stairs to the top.

This place in Pattaya was something I wanted to see as a tourist, but it ended up touching me spiritually too. It's a must-visit regardless of your faith. There's a bit of walking, but the views are worth it. I'd recommend it to everyone. Enjoy!

Everyone loves a free activity and this is it. You can donate money if you want or buy prayer things for your Gospel statue. The views from this point are beautiful so good photo opportunity. Very busy at the time we went which was around lunchtime

Not really worth seeing. Only good thing is that it is for free and the view down on the city is not bad. For those who are religious I think it makes it s better experience. From a tourist point of view extremely disappointing.
