This place is two attractions in one. It is a viewpoint and also a grand temple complex.
Construction has been ongoing for more than 10 years and is funded by donations. It all started with the ambitious idea of a few friends who once found this place in the mountains. From the observation deck you can see the two coasts of Phuket. Chalong is to the East and Kata, Karon is to the West.
There is a small temple at the base of the statue where you can get blessed by a Buddhist monk. And if you come across people rubbing the Gong with their hands - get in line. It is believed that if it “sings” it means you have a pure soul.

The passage to the observation deck is to the left immediately after you climb to the statue.
