The Big Buddha of Phuket is the most holy landmark on Phuket island. This imposing Guanyin Buddha statue is located on the Nakkerd Mountain between Chalong Port and Kata, facing Phang Nga Bay and with his back to the beautiful Andaman Sea. The Big Buddha is 45 meters tall, and is located at the peak of the mountain, at the center of Phuket. You only need to look up to see him. He is a symbol of peace and hope for local residents. The Big Buddha is the best place to overlook Phuket, and gazing out at the faraway sea provides a feeling of peace.
