Golden Buddha, Bangkok Reviews
People come here and pay 40 Baht to see the large golden Buddha. Personally I don't think it's worth the visit solely to come here. The Buddha is awesome for sure, but unless you're on your way to/from Chinatown or Wat Pho I wouldn't bother. Of course if you are on your way to those areas it's surely worth a pop in. It's also super close to the final MRT station.
Beautiful architecture and design of the temple. Also the statue is said to be made of gold which was only discovered about 60 years or so back and had been covered in stucco or plaster for about 200 years. It was first found lying in the beach is what I was told by the local guide after which it was picked up and placed in a small temple. They discovered that it was good only when they were shifting it for renovations of the same temple. The local tourist shops have reasonable pricing and have some really beautiful things to pick and choose from and of course the shop keepers are extremely polite, so that's a plus as well. It's located almost in the busy part of the city. And I recommend this place to see the beauty and the view from the top of the temple.
This temple is so important as it holds the largest pure gold Buddha image in the world. The image dates back to the sukhothai period and weighs over 5 tons. It's definitely worth the visit.
Wat Traimit – home of a large Buddha image. Rising to only 15 feet, in a land where Buddha images sometimes shoot 32 meters into the air, some people might ask what is so remarkable about a Buddha image that is relatively small compared to others. The answer – this Buddha image is solid gold!
Not much crowd. Calm and peaceful. Not very far from Wat Pho, you can definitely put this on your visit list on the way to Wat Pho. 40 baht to visit the temple and 100 baht for the museum. There's a small souvenir shop you can also check out that, no footwear allowed. :)
