Wat Phra Yai Temple

On the very top of Pratumnak Hill, between Pattaya and Jomtien Beach, you can’t fail to notice an enormous 18 metre tall Buddha popping up through the trees. This temple was built in the 1940s when
Pattaya was nothing more than a fishing village. The Big Buddha is extremely popular with tour groups who love to see the intricate design of the statue and the temple complex, but it is also revered by local people who come to pray at the temple. Entry to the temple is free of cost.



Highlights
:  At the top of the hill you can take pictures near the many Buddha figures in different postures, which are representative of different days of the week. Before you get to the top of the hill
your eye will catch hoards of vendors selling caged birds, a symbol in Thailand where you have set them free and gain good Karma.
