Traimit, the Temple of the Golden Buddha
Traimit, the fabulous Temple of the Golden Buddha, is located
at the end of Yaowarat Road, near Hualamphong Station.
temple is famous for its five-and-a-half-ton solid gold image,
designed in the Sukhothai style. This image was 'discovered'
in the 1950s under a plaster exterior when it fell from a
crane while being relocated. The plaster was probably added
to disguise the image from pillagers during the Sukhothai
and later Ayutthaya periods.
Traimit is open daily from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm with a 10 baht
