General Information

The Temple of the Golden Buddha or Wat Traimit as it is more officially known as is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand. The temple is known for housing the world's largest gold seated Buddha at five metres wide and weighing 5 tons. The Buddha was discovered by accident as it was dropped when it was being moved and the outer plaster which craftsmen used to hide Buddhas from invading armies broke unveiling the golden monument. Since its discovery, it has become a major attraction for followers of the Buddhist faith.

Getting there

The temple is a short walk away from one of the city's major transport hubs, ‘Hua Lamphong’ station. Trains, buses and metro routes terminate at the station.

Opening Times and Admission

The temple is open to visitors from 9am-5pm. Admission to see the Buddha is free, but if you want to enter the museum at the temple that will set you back 10 Baht.
