Soon big buddha

This is one of the biggest Buddha statue of this world I suppose. The temple is open all day through without any entry fee but since it's on a hill top one has to climb quiet a few steps that is nicely decorated with flying dragon. Being on top of the hill at sunset or during sun rise either is worth a view.

Huge and Handsome

Absolutely Blissful!!!One of few places where entry is free.Not only Big Buddha is Brilliant, the whole place and the panoramic views all round is stunningly brilliant.Construction work is going on and donations are accepted.In my opinion Big Buddha is the No. 1 spot in Phuket. So, it's a must visit for all age groups when you are in Phuket. When we sit in silence after completing all the prayers, we will be absolutely peaceful and feel completely relaxed.We booked Phuket city tour for 1200 THB / 6 hours, for a huge Toyota van from SRC Tours which is very comfortable. Had a wonderful time in Phuket.

Must see the bell

Large, serene, beautiful, as many words you can think is less to describe this place and the statue of Lord Buddha. There is a bell which one must see. The bell is empty from inside but still rings, a real miracle you would not want to miss.
