Wat Traimit in Bangkok
Wat Traimit is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok’s China Town district, 450 metres walking distance from Bangkok’s main railway station. Wat Traimit is famous for hosting the world’s largest sold gold Buddha statue, the Phra Phuttha Maha Suwan Patimakon statue, which weighs 5,500 kg and is 3 metres tall. According to legend the statue was covered in clay at some point around 1767, when the Burmese invaded Ayutthaya, as a way of hiding the statue to stop it being taken back to Burma. The true nature of statue, so the story goes, was only revealed again in 1955 when the statue was accidentally dropped whilst being moved cracking the clay covering.
Since the discovery of the statue Wat Traimit itself has gone from being a small and not particularly important temple in downtown Bangkok to a major tourist attraction. A large ‘mondop’ has been constructed to house the statue. A mondop is a traditional form of temple building with a square base and spire at the top, similar in shape to a pyramid. The mondop at Wat Traimit is one of the most spectacular temple buildings in Thailand. It has three levels, with the Phra Phuttha Maha Suwan Patimakon statue on display on the top level and museum displays in the two lower levels.
