Guardian of the Gold

This impressive statue can be found at the Bankok Golden Temple, Thailand. The ornate and highly revered Buddhist temple contains the golden image of Buddha, which is made of solid gold and weighs approx. 5.5 tons. It is a unique experience to visit this temple which is open to the general public as long as they dress respectfully, and it is of popular opinion that a trip to Bangkok is incomplete without visiting this temple.
