About this place

Wat Traimit is the Temple of the Golden Buddha which is officially called Phra Phuttha Maha Suwan Patimakon. The goden statue is made of 18 carat gold, 4 m high, over 3 m wide, and it weighs 5 tons.
Until today it is not certain from which period it dates, but it is made in Sukhothai Dynasty style. During its history it has been moved several times to different temples. Because of its enormous value it was plastered for some time to prevent it from being stolen. Since the mid 18th century until 1955 the true value of the statue was unknown. Its golden surface was accidentally revealed when the statue fell during transportation, and some parts of the plaster fell off. Today the temple Wat Traimit is visited by many who want to see this magnificent golden masterpiece.
