The Big Buddha Temple serves as an important landmark of the Koh Samui Island while the nearby monastery is a great place of meditation for foreigners and locals. The temple has a Golden Buddha of 12-meter height and dates back to around 4 decades.
The giant size and beauty of the statue is a thing of marvel for most tourists.
Its size and structure makes it prominently visible from a great distance and even from the aeroplane while arriving or departing from the island. There are many shops and restaurants at the base of the temple.
The temple of the Big Buddha lies to the Northeast of Koh Samui on route 4171 close to the airport.
