Buddha Mountain (Khao Chi Chan)
Khao Chi Chan features a giant sculptural image of Lord Buddha erected on a giant cliff. It was built in 1995, an initiative of then Supreme Patriarch who didn’t want to see the marble mountains destroyed so he commissioned the giant Buddha image on the cliff that was already half quarried. The image was designed using computer software and then drawn onto the side of Khao Chi Chan using a laser. This was done entirely at night, so that the light of the laser could be seen more clearly. During the day, the image would be fixed and adjusted. Finally, with the drawing completed, gold was used to fill in the sculpture.
