The Golden Buddha is the world's largest solid gold statue. It is located in the temple of Wat Traimit, in Chinatown, Bangkok. The origins of this statue remain uncertain. It is made in the Sukhothai Dynasty style, and is thought to have been made during the Sukhothai period in the 13th-14th centuries, though it could have been made after that time. On 14 February 2010, a large new building was inaugurated at the Wat Traimit Temple to house the Gold Buddha. The building also contains the Bangkok Chinatown Heritage Centre, and an exhibition on the origin of the Gold Buddha.
The statue is 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall and weighs 5.5 tonnes
