Celebrate Golden Moments at the Golden Buddha
The Golden Buddha welcomes travelers as they set off the beaten track while visiting Bangkok. What makes the Golden Buddha unusual is the fact that the statue is the largest ever constructed from pure gold. Weighing five and a half tons, the statue is around three meters tall and is the hidden glory of Bangkok’s Chinatown district. Once you’re done gazing at the beautiful statue of Lord Buddha, you can assemble your offerings alongside the locals who hum their daily prayers at the shrine. Officially known as Phra Phuttha Maha Suwan Patimakon, the statue is laid out inside the Wat Traimit Temple that is constructed with golden exteriors.
