What people are saying:

Qizhen Foshan is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Emperor Tai's accession to the throne. A special laser is used to carve a statue of Sakyamuni Buddha. This is the largest statue of Sakyamuni Buddha in Pattaya. It is made of 18 tons of 24K gold sculptures. Many ancient Buddha statues were also excavated in this mountain. Qizhen Foshan is eye-opening. Legend has it that this is where the dragon veins were found by a monk for the current ninth emperor. He cut a mountain in the shape of a mountain, flattened the mountain surface, and carved a big Buddha with 4 tons of gold. The meditation Buddha statue was drawn by laser technology, with gold inlaid lines imported from Italy, the gold thread is dazzling, and the relic of Sakyamuni is hidden in the heart of the Buddha. The seated Buddha statues are kind-looking and can be seen from miles away. Due to scientific and reasonable arrangements, coupled with the geographical environment, in addition to the front, the left and right sides can also see the golden body of the Buddha sitting on the lotus seat.

Additional Information

Introduction

An image of Buddha was laser engraved into the side Khao Chi Chan in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the king’s ascension to the throne. The mountain is truly a sight to behold, and it is said that it is a dragon sorghum for the ninth king. The mountain was split into two during the Vietnam War but is now a site symbolizing peace. Laser carvings were inlaid with gold, making it a truly spectacular sight.
