Although it was a quick and short trip to the place it was nice. It is a huge white stone made Buddha. Being on height, the views of Phuket beaches are exceptional all around. Can spend more time at this place.

This religious item is truly huge and getting more impressive as time goes on. The Bhudda is truly massive living up to its billing, there are some golden icons you cannot see from below, these some may say are just as impressive but much smaller....More
