Before or after visiting Khao Yai national park, this huge white buddha up the mountain and temple at the bottom is worth visiting. It's 631 steps up though!

It is a serene and scenic place to visit. Visitors without proper attire will be be allow to enter the compound. A tourist attraction. It will take 1 hour or two to climb up the hill which is around 1200 steps.
