Exploring Bangkok: Visiting the “Temple of the Golden Buddha

 

Visiting the “Temple of the Golden Buddha” in Bangkok Thailand: This historic temple features a gilded exterior, exhibitions & a massive golden statue of Buddha. Located at the end of Chinatown’s Yaowarat Road, near Hualampong Railway Station, Wat Traimit houses the world’s largest massive gold seated Buddha measuring nearly five metres in height and weighing five and a half tons. In the past, artisans crafted the Buddhas in gold and disguised them from invading armies by a covering of stucco and plaster.
Address: Wat Traimit,, Mittaphap Thai-China Rd, Talat Noi, Samphanthawong, Bangkok 10100, Thailand.
