Work on the Big Buddha statue inward Phuket has been going on for many years. The original Buddha icon is 45 meters high too sits over 400m inward a higher house body of body of water marking on a hilltop inward the southward of Phuket island. We caput upwardly in that place at to the lowest degree a few times per year, sometimes larn unopen to nutrient at a picayune eating theater nigh the transcend of the hill, sometimes only to savor the views too to cheque on the progress of the construction. I realised of late that I had non blogged the Buddha for nearly two years. Last time the original statue was yet covered inward scaffolding. Now things expect rattling different.

As y'all tin hand the axe see, the original icon is covered inward marble, though the whole of the base of operations including giant lotus leaves yet needs to hold out marbled. It's already an impressive sight... it was already impressive a yoke of years ago! Work continues slowly, donations are yet beingness collected. It's much busier than it used to be. There's a sizeable car common now, to a greater extent than nutrient too sip sellers accept sprung up.. I actually promise it does non larn also commercial.

There are many donation boxes along the agency - upwardly to you! Over the years nosotros accept made many donations. You tin hand the axe yet pay to accept your mention on a marble slab which volition hold out used inward the building. Somewhere inward there, our names are to hold out institute on marble too on bricks too. Having your mention too the names of your loved ones equally purpose of a Buddha statue is considered rattling practiced luck.

As y'all start to climb the steps, the agency is lined alongside hundreds of bells. You tin hand the axe purchase a bell too hang it hither to telephone inward the air current on the hilltop. The audio of all these bells is somewhat magical.

We experience a unopen connecter to the Big Buddha, having been upwardly the mount thus many times, having seen the statue grow upwardly from nothing.. the rattling showtime fourth dimension nosotros came upwardly hither in that place was picayune to a greater extent than than a pile of dirt! It's getting busier for sure, too I tin hand the axe run across that, ane time finished, the Buddha volition hold out on the itinerary of many tours. It's non only "our" Buddha whatever more... There's no entry fee at the moment, donations are voluntary. I promise it stays that way. But although y'all don't have to pay - delight create exit a donation! The views volition e'er hold out cracking - the thought below is looking northward along the hills.

The Big Buddha is good worth a visit. You tin hand the axe elbow grease upwardly past times car or motorcycle or tuk tuks volition elbow grease upwardly here. The route is almost all paved now. It's well-nigh 6km to the transcend from the original route that runs betwixt Phuket Town past times Chalong Temple. The plow off is well-nigh 1km earlier y'all achieve the Chalong traffic circle if y'all are coming from town. An piece of cake elbow grease from Kata or Karon beaches.

Finishing date? There is no engagement given for completion. There seems to hold out no rush. We visited in conclusion weekend too in that place were non many workers. But anyway, fifty-fifty incomplete the Buddha is ane of our favourite spots... And finally a photograph that I recollect shows a picayune of the scale of the Big Buddha.
