Bangkok is a fabulous place to see. We will talk about Bangkok attractions and especially the floating market Bangkok. One of just ten first grade royal temples in Bangkok, Wat Suhat needs to be seen to be believed such is the sheer size and scale of it. Its ornate ordination hall is the largest in the country. Everything about the temple is oversized. Twenty-eight Chinese pagodas line its lower base, with their intricate carvings and decorations perfectly showing off the incredible Thai craftsmanship. Inside is just as beautiful, with wonderful murals depicting the life of the Buddha. The eight-meter high bronze Buddha image Phra Sri Sakayamuni is both an important historical and religious artifact.
Sheer luck (or lack thereof) makes this attraction special. During the 1950s, the East Asiatic Company purchased the land around the temple. A condition of the sale was the removal of a plaster statue of Buddha, but the statue proved too heavy for the crane being used. The cable parted and the figure was dropped, being left overnight where it fell. It happened to be in the rainy season, and when next morning some monks walked past, they noticed a glint of gold shining through the plaster. The coating was removed, revealing a 3.5 m Buddha cast from 5.5 tons of solid gold. All attempts to trace the origin of this priceless statue have so far failed, but it is assumed to date from the Sukhothai period, when marauding invaders threatened the country and its treasures, and it became common practice to conceal valuable Buddha figures beneath a coating of plaster. No one knows how it came to Bangkok, but here it stands available for the admiration of visitors from all over the world.
