Create an itinerary including Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)
Witness the delicately modeled beauty of the world's largest gold seated Buddha at Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit). Many of Asia's golden statues were once covered in plaster and stucco to disguise them from invading armies during times of conflict. The discovery of this magnificent golden Buddha was accidental: a team of people moving the object dropped it, its plaster casing cracked, and the golden figure shone out after many years in hiding. Visit the established Bangkok temple complex to admire the Buddha's clear, crisp form and learn of its fascinating origins. Work out when and for how long to visit Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit) and other Bangkok attractions using our handy Bangkok trip planner.

  • This is one of the most important tourist attraction in the city of Bangkok. Tourist from all over the world throng here to see the divine Buddha statue. Its very much calm and serene and there are many souvenir shops outside . Bargain as much as possible to get a good deal. Plenty of Buddha statues are available. Its very well connected with the city transit system.
  • One of the most popular temple in Bangkok. There is a big gold Buddha statue. The structure of the temple is beautiful. This temple is located near Chinatown Bangkok. Please be reminded that do not wear short pants into the temple. The entrance fee is 40 baht.
