Bangkok Travel Guide

Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)

Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)

Dating back to the 13th century, Wat Traimit stands nearly 10 feet (3m) tall, weighs over five tons and is believed to be solid cast gold, the largest gold statue in the world. It was discovered by accident in 1957 when an old stucco image was dropped by a crane, shattering the plaster shell to reveal the brilliantly shining gold underneath. The statue is breathtaking and is thought to have come from Ayutthaya covered in plaster to hide it from the Burmese invaders.


Address: Traimit Rd
Opening Time: Open daily 9am-5pm.
Admission: THB 20 donation.
