  Wat Traimit (Golden Buddha)

 

Thailand

Wat Traimit in Bangkok houses a 5.5 ton Buddha image made of pure gold. Here it is seen in its previous shrine, a small mondop at the temple's compound. At the end of 2009 it was moved to a newly constructed mondop (fig.), a high-rise building in white marble (fig.).
