Witness the delicately modeled beauty of the world's largest gold seated Buddha at Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit). Many of Asia's golden statues were once covered in plaster and stucco to disguise them from invading armies during times of conflict. The discovery of this magnificent golden Buddha was accidental: a team of people moving the object dropped it, its plaster casing cracked, and the golden figure shone out after many years in hiding. Visit the established Bangkok temple complex to admire the Buddha's clear, crisp form and learn of its fascinating origins.

  • Very beautiful and very commercial, this gorgeous temple requires a ticket and shoes off. Definitely worth a visit for the views and the lovely temple structure and interior.

  • One of the most popular temple in Bangkok. There is a big gold Buddha statue. The structure of the temple is beautiful. This temple is located near Chinatown Bangkok. Please be reminded that do not wear short pants into the temple. The entrance fee is 40 baht.
  • Excellent visit to see the golden Buddha. The temple is spectacular and the size of the golden statue is very impressive. The engravings on the doors and the shutters are also interesting.
