Bangkok City & Temples


Thailand has over 26,000 temples (or Wats). Visit Wat Trimitr, the temple of the Golden Buddha which features a statue made from solid gold weighing 5.5 tons. It is a fine example of Sukhothai art and was discovered by chance during construction of the temple. Passing through Chinatown the next stop is Wat Po, the temple of the reclining Buddha which is the largest and oldest in Bangkok. Lastly stop at Wat Benchamabopit or the marble temple. This magnificent monastery was built with white Italian marble from Carrara.
