WAT TRIMITWITTHAYARAM
WAT TRIMITWITTHAYARAM (worawihan)
Formerly called "Wat Samjeentai, this temple was built by three Chinese comrades around 150 years ago. It was restored in 1937 and granted the new name of Wat Trimitwitthayaram.
Phra Sukhothaitrimit: The main attraction of the temple is the five-ton, three-metre tall Sukhothai-style Buddha image in the Subduing Mara position made of solid gold known as the Golden Buddha. The image was once believed to be of ordinary stucco until it fell from a crane while being moved to a new building and the gold inside was revealed. The theory is that the covering was a means of protecting it from the Burmese while the capital of Ayutthaya was under siege.
