Khao Chee Jan, ( also spelt ~ Khao Chee Chan, Khao Chi Chan ) the Laser etched Buddha, Chonburi, Thailand

Khao Chee Jan is one of the tourist spots in Chonburi, here you will find the biggest Buddha image sculptured on the cliff  face ( height: 109 metres, wide: 70 metres )

.Leaving the car park at the Silverlake Vineyard turn left and drive down the road for no more than 3 or 4 minutes and on the left you will see the large car park for this spectacular Buddha image. There is  a large field in front of the cliff, including a lake filled with water lilies and a rock garden. However, tourists are not allowed to enter the lake and the garden for safety reasons, who wants to be hit by falling rocks?

The construction began to mark the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of His Majesty King Bhumibol. The first step was to design the image  using computer software. Then the next step was to etch out the design onto the cliff face.

Finally the laser drawing was undertaken at night time so that the procedure could be plainly seen in the dark. Once started it was completed in one hit, with no stopping. The Buddha image is the sitting form in the style of Pang Man Wichai as Phrawarachabopit.

The Department of Geological Resources and the Asian Institute of Technology carved the sitting Buddha onto the cliff face. The actual carving took only two days to do, but filling in the grooves with gold leaf took many more months.  The total cost of the project, according to the Dept of Geological Resources was more than 100 million Baht.

Khao Chee Jan  is open from 06.00 am until 06.00 pm. Please remember to obey the warning signs as they are there for your safety.
