Wat Traimit, Bangkok

This temple is one of the highlights of Yaowarat, but is actually not part of China's cultural heritage.

This temple is one of the highlights of Yaowarat, but is actually not part of China's cultural heritage. It houses the Phra Phuttha Maha Suwan Patimakon, the world's largest solid-gold Buddha image, which originates from the Sukhothai period. It is over three metres tall and weighs five and a half tonnes, with an interesting history. The image was only rediscovered about 50 years ago when it dropped from a crane while being moved. This cracked the plaster exterior that was applied to hide the image from the invading Burmese army. There is an impressive white structure with a golden spire next to the temple, that reaches higher than many other buildings in the district.
