Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit) Tours

Located at the end of Chinatown's Yaowarat Road, near Hua Lampong Station, Wat Traimit is home to the world's largest gold-seated Buddha. Measuring in at three meters tall and weighing over five tons, the Golden Buddha makes Wat Traimit a prominent stop on Bangkok’s temple trail.

This impressive statue attracts floods of visitors who come to marvel at its impressive size and gleaming golden surface, but was once hidden from invading armies by a covering of plaster. Pieces of the plaster that once formed its disguise can now be found on display in a case within the temple.

Practical Info

Wat Traimit is located on Traimit Road, just west of Hua Lampong Station and at the very beginning of Chinatown. It is open from 9am until 5pm and entrance is free, although there’s a small admission fee to enter the museum located on the third floor.
