http://wattraimit.freetzi.com/history... Phra Maha Mondop, new home of the all-gold Buddha statue, at Wat Traimitr Wittayaram. Construction began two years ago after the temple found that the room where the statute, weighing 5.5 tons and 3.04 metres tall, was kept had become too small to accommodate visitors, numbering some 2,000 daily, arriving to pay homage to the popular Sukhothai-style image. Bangkok Post Funded through public donation with the government forking out 250 million baht, the new all-marble home of the golden Buddha, 60 metres tall and 30 metres wide, will have a seven-tiered tiled roof. Apart from the statue, it will boast an exhibition area chronicling the history of Chinese people living in the Yaowarat area since the Rattanakosin period until present day, backed by multimedia presentation. วัดไตรมิตรวิทยารามวรวิหาร
