The Big Buddha is the most revered and the most important landmarks in Phuket. The divine marble sculpture sits atop the Nakkerd Hills which are situated between Kata and Chalong and reaches a height of forty five meters thus being visible over a large distance. The Big Buddha structure is elegant in itself and cuts a peaceful and divine picture. Getting close one may hear the tinkling of tiny bells and the flapping of the yellow flags along with slow humming music. The Buddha image covers twenty five meters at its base, the body being layered in Burmese marble.
