The Golden Buddha

This is an important site for Thai locals. Dating back to the 1200s the image of Buddha is spectacular. This 10 foot statue weighing in at over 5 tons consists of solid gold. The story of its discovery is a famed legend that when it was found it had been covered with plaster, probably to protect it being sacked by foreign invaders. Beneath the plaster was this fantastic statue of gleaming gold.
