Temple of the Golden Buddha

661 Charoenkrung Road, Samphanthawong District, Bangkok 10100, Thailand
Convince yourself of the world's largest massive gold Buddha, which consists of about 83% pure gold, weighs five and a half tons and measures nearly five meters. It also has a very interesting story to tell you about. At some point in history, the statue was covered with gypsum, most likely veiling its true nature and protecting it from thieves. Over time, everyone forgot that a unique gem hid inside. So it was a great surprise to discover his glory later. All the more, as the gold body was accidentally uncovered, it fell to the ground as it was brought to its current location. In the chapel are still broken sections of the plaster to see. Make sure you get dressed and take off your shoes before you enter. Also, consider visiting the temple in the early morning before it gets too hot.
