It was completed in 2008 (except for the base) and is one of the most striking vantage points on the island. The imposing marble statue is 45 meters high and has a diameter of 25 meters at the base. The Buddha sits on a large pedestal made of stylized lotus flowers and looks east over Chalong Bay from the top of Nakkerd Hill (Khao Nakkerd) . For the not yet completely finished base, you can buy marble slabs for a small fee and have them built in with your name.
