About Khao Chi Chan (“Buddha Mountain”)
Buddha Mountain is arguably the most splendid religious
symbol in Pattaya. The image of Buddha sitting cross-legged, with one hand
resting on his knee and the other in his lap, is engraved into the northern
face of Khao Chi Chan.
The surrounding area is steeped with natural beauty, while Khao Chi Chan is its most prominent landmark and attraction; other facilities have sprung up around it to take advantage of the high level of passing trade in the form of Thai and foreign visitors to this remarkable place.
Highlights: The grounds in front of Buddha Mountain include a temple, with saffron-robed monks a common sight, so appropriate clothing is recommended (clothing that covers shoulders and legs above the knee). Beyond this, there are no fees or restrictions on entering the grounds and getting up close to the awe-inspiring image.
