Buddha Mountain (Khao Chi Chan Buddha)
The 130-meter-high Buddha Mountain is one of the most noticeable landmarks in the region, visible to anyone from miles away. The image was originally created in 1996 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s reign on the throne of Thailand. The image was carved using laser technology and then inlaid with gold leaf. The mountain also has some beautifully landscaped gardens and lotus pools, giving an air of tranquility to the place.
