The Big Buddha

The Big Buddha, also known as the Phra Phutta Ming Mongkol Akenakiri Buddha, is a revered landmark located atop Nakkerd Hill in Phuket, Thailand. Standing at 45 meters tall, this majestic statue is made of reinforced concrete and covered in white Burmese marble. Construction of the Big Buddha began in 2004 and was completed in 2018, making it one of the island's most prominent attractions.

Surrounded by lush greenery and offering panoramic views of Phuket's stunning landscapes, the Big Buddha serves as a symbol of peace, serenity, and spiritual contemplation for both locals and visitors alike. Visitors can ascend the hill to reach the statue, where they can admire its grandeur and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere while taking in breathtaking vistas of the island and beyond.
