Khao Chi Chan Carved Buddha Mountain
Khao Chi Chan is a 130 meter high place of worship which features a cliff face inlaid with gold leaf in the outline of a sitting Sukhothai-Lanna Buddha created to honor His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej's 50th anniversary of his enthronement. The image's royally- bestowed name is Phra Phuttha Maha Wachira Utta Mopat Satsada, which means His Lord Buddha, is virtuous and glorious as Maha Wachira (the Great Wisdom). The mountain is surrounded by a wide variety of flowering plants and a number of pavilions for meditation and rest. Directly in front of the cliff face are shrines, elaborate gardens, and a number of terraced pools stocked with lotus flowers.
