History of the Golden Buddha

The origin of the huge Buddha image is not exactly known. Because of its style it is assumed that it was cast during the Sukhothai era, the Kingdom that existed from 1238 until 1438 with the city of Sukhothai in Northern Thailand as its center.

Golden Buddha installed in Wat Traimit

The Golden Buddha was taken to the Wat Chotanaram in Bangkok. In the 1930’s the image finally ended up in the Wat Traimit, still covered in plaster.

In 1955 a viharn was erected to house the image. When the Golden Buddha was moved to the new building using a crane, a cable broke and the image fell to the ground and into the mud. The workmen are said to have run off fearing bad luck.

The next day, when a monk returned to the temple he found the image still in the mud, with some of the plaster coating broken revealing the gold, thus revealing the true identity and value of the image.

The Wat Pho or “Temple of the Reclining Buddha” is one of Bangkok’s most attractive temples. It is a much visited temple complex due to its location immediately South of the Grand Palace and the huge Reclining Buddha image it houses.

The temple that is officially named Wat Phra Chetuphon Wimonmangkhalaram is one of the six temples in Thailand that are of the highest grade of the first class Royal temples.

Oldest and largest temple in Bangkok

The Wat Pho is the oldest and largest temple complex in Bangkok, it houses more than 1,000 Buddha images which is more than any other Wat in Thailand. Most of the images were brought over from abandoned temples in places as Ayutthaya and Sukhothai by order of King Rama I.

After the foundation of Bangkok in the Ko Rattanakosin area in 1782 and the construction of the Grand Palace, King Rama I ordered the construction of the Wat Pho. The temple was built on the site of an older, Ayutthaya era temple named Wat Photharam right next to the Grand Palace.

During the reign of King Rama III the temple complex was renovated and enlarged which took over 16 years to complete.

46 meters long gold plated Reclining Buddha

The temple is famous for its enormous gold plated Reclining Buddha image. The image named Phra Phuttha Saiyat was build during the reign of King Rama III in 1832 and is 46 meters long and 15 meters high.

Although the image is sometimes referred to as the lying Buddha or the sleeping Buddha, the Reclining Buddha shows the passing of the Buddha into final Nirvana after death.

The marble ubosot of the Wat Benchamabophit

The ubosot of the marble temple was designed by Prince Narisara Nuvativongse, half brother of King Chulalongkorn. It is build from carrara marble imported from Italy, hence the name marble temple.

The entrance is marked by four impressive marble pillars, and even the large courtyard is made of shiny white marble.

The temple is a magnificent example of the Bangkok architectural style with its multi tiered roofs, elegant chofahs at the top end of the roof and the beautiful gold carvings. The white marble and the golden decorated windows give the ubosot a delightful appearance, especially in the sunlight.

On either side of the entrance is a large stone lion, guarding the temple.
