About Rang Hill and Big Buddha

Rang Hill is the most prominent viewpoint of Phuket and is famous for its Big Buddha Statue. Big Buddha is a 45-meter tall white marble statue visible from anywhere in the southern part of Phuket. This place also a museum of the history of the Buddha. The magnanimity of the statue will overwhelm you and make you feel small- really, really small. Once you're over that feeling, look around to get the stunning 360-degree views of the island, with impressive vistas of Phuket Town, Karon beaches, Kata and Chalong Bay. This place is very peaceful, and one can hear the soothing tinkling of small bells at a far distance. There are yellow Buddhist flags in the compound fluttering in the wind with a soft dharma music in the background. This revered landmark sits on top of Nakkerd Hills looking down as a symbol of hope on Phuket. You will find touching messages inscribed by tourists at the bottom of the statue: people usually donate money for the maintenance of the messages. On a busy day, this place is visited by at least, 1,000 visitors to leave prayers for luck and love. There is also a hall at the base of the Buddha where you can learn more about the project. It has been funded entirely by the public, which is remarkable.
