Among them, the world's largest golden Buddha temple that's officially known as Wat Traimit Withayaram is a unique attraction. This statue made with 5.5 tons of solid gold. This statue itself has a story, and in the museum, you can know about the story with a 3D presentation.
The Watt Trimet Golden Buddha statue was built in the 13th-14th century in the Sukhamai dynasty style. The Head of the statue is egg-shaped, which indicates the Sukothai period and the metal figure made in India. After a few times, it moved from Sukhothai to Ayutthaya.
In 1801 Rama I, after creating a new capital city of the kingdom that is Bangkok, ordered to collect Buddha images from the ruined temples around Bangkok. And then Rama III brought the Buddha Images in the main temple. In 1935 the statue again moved its present location, which is nearby Wat Tramit.
Wat Traimit Golden Buddha Temple is known as the world's most giant solid Buddha statue. The height of the statue is 15-foot tall and made with approximately 83% pure gold, and the weight of this golden statue is approximately five and a half tons. The value of this statue in today's price is millions of dollars—the statue located on the top of the four marble-lined structures. The golden Buddha initially covered in plaster, it accidentally dropped it. Right now, that piece kept on the temple.
