golden Buddha
This temple is well known for its 3 metre tall, 5.5 tons solid gold Buddha image, constructed over 700 years ago during the Sukhothai period. Originally the gold image was covered with plaster to conceal it from the invading Burmese and was just rediscovered accidentally about 40 years ago.On 14 February 2010, Wat Traimit new building named Phra Maha Mondop was officially opened to the public. And the gold Buddha was moved here. The first floor of the building is the Yaowarat Chinatown Heritage Centre where tourists can learn the history of the Chinese immigrants in Thailand as well as their culture which has become part of the Thai culture. The second floor holds an exhibition of the origin of the gold Buddha. And the top level is where the world largest gold Buddha image is enshrined.
This highly revered temple contains the golden Image Buddha, which is made of solid gold and weighs approximately 5 ? tons.The golden Buddha was taken to the Wat Chotanaram in Bangkok. In the 1930 the image finally ended up in the Wat Traimit, still covered in plaster. In 1955 a viharn was erected to house the image. When the golden Buddha was moved to the new building using a crane, a cable broke and the image fell to the ground and into the mud. The workmen are said to have run off fearing bad luck.
