About Wat Traimit

The Temple of Golden Buddha or Wat Traimit, officially titled Phra Phuttha Maha Suwan Patimakon is a temple housing the world's largest massive gold Buddha statue made of 5.5 tonnes of solid gold. The Buddha statue inside the temple is represented in the traditional pose of Bhumisparsha Mudra that is touching the earth with the right hand to witness Shakyamuni Buddha's enlightenment at Bodh Gaya. According to the locals, the company that had purchased the land around the temple wanted to remove the plaster statue of Buddha sitting at this spot but failed miserably due to the size and weight of it. Due to heavy rains one night, the plaster coating was removed, which revealed the gold on the statue. This was noticed by a monk passing the place, and thus, the Temple of Golden Buddha was built. No one till date knows about the origin of this statue. Historically intriguing and significant, this place will make you feel ecstatic, nostalgic and overwhelmed- all at the same time!
