Attraction Details :

The park’s most beloved attraction is its temple, Wat Khao Kong, and Phra Phutthathaksin Mingmongkhon, a golden Buddha image seated atop the mountain in the posture of giving the first sermon. The statue’s artistic style originates from southern India, with construction that began in 1966 and concluded in 1969. The reinforced concrete statue, decorated with gold, has a lap width of 17 meters and a height of 24 meters from the lotus-bud halo to the lotus base. It is considered the most beautiful and largest outdoor Buddha image in the south.

Also nearby is the bell-shaped Sirimahamaya Chedi (or stupa), where Lord Buddha’s relics are believed to be enshrined, along with a Brahma statue. An ordination hall is located on an adjacent hill, with beautiful carved terracotta on its exterior walls.

The Khao Kong Buddhist Park occupies an area of nearly 57 acres in Tambon Lamphu, about 9 kilometers from town on the Narathiwat - Rangae route (Highway No. 4055). It is open daily from 9.00 am-5.00 pm.
