Buddha Mountain (Khao Chi Chan) Chon Buri

Buddha Mountain (Khao Chi Chan) Chon Buri
The following is taken from a signboard located in the area:
Amphoe Satthahip. Officially named “Phra Buddha Maha Uttamopas Sasada”, the image in seated meditation posture of Sukhothai cum Lanna style measures 130metres high and is 70 metres wideacross the laps. It was built in 1996 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of His Majesty the King ascending to the throne, and it is now under the care of the Royal Navy.The cost of construction totalled 161.7 million baht.

There are many tourists coming in buses to see the Buddha image, carved using laser to the mountain. In front of the mountain, a beautiful park is built. When I was there, it was quite windy and nice.

To get to Khao Chee San, there is no public transportation- usually, arrangement by tour, or to get someone to take you there by car or motorbike.

Address:

Soi Khao Chi Chan,
Tambon Na Chom Thian,
Amphoe Sattahip,
