Artist's Description

Capture The Sanctury Of Truth Buddah Mountain in Pattaya Thailand. Beautiful it is captured some stautues ect while there..Used a tad touch of HDR in this photo..

Buddha Mountain. This is a cliff inlaid with gold leaf in the outline of a sitting Buddha. This is the largest Buddha image in the world. It is 130 meters tall, 70 meters wide, and can be seen from miles away. The image and mountain are alternately referred to as “Buddha Mountain”, Khao Chee Chan, or “Phra Phuttha Maha Vachira Utta Mopas Sasada”. During the Vietnam Conflict the Thai navy was mining the mountain for stone to be used at an American base. After the war the mountain was illegally mined for stone to be sold to construction companies. When his Majesty put a stop to the mining, he suggested that they create a Buddha image in gold to commemorate the King’s Golden Jubilee. American lasers took two days to do the carving itself. But it took months to fill in the carving with gold. The cost of this project was over $3 million. In the park surrounding the cliff there are many areas to meditate and rest. And there are signs there to point you in the most scenic viewpoint. Directly in front of the cliff face are shrines, elaborate gardens, and a number of terraced pools stocked with lotus flowers. Pains have been taken to make Buddha Mountain a quiet, contemplative place.

This is a moment of time i will never forget this beautiful place..
