The Golden Buddha

Updated: Jul 30, 2020

Is this a story that describes your story?

In 1957 a group of monks had to relocate a large clay Buddha from their temple to a new location. There was a highway development through Bangkok and hence the reason for the relocation. The monks hired a crane to lift the clay Buddha but the weight of the Buddha was so tremendous that it started to crack. Rain also began to fall. The monks were concerned about the possible damage. The head monk ordered the Buddha back down to cover it with a tarp to protect it from the rain.  Later in the evening the head monk went to check on the Buddha to make sure it was drying. He used a flashlight to check on it and when he flashed the flashlight he noticed a gleam of something shinning back at him. He was intrigued and went to find a chisel to see if there was something underneath the clay. After hours of chiseling away he stood staring at a beautiful golden Buddha.

Historians say that several hundreds of years ago the Buddha was covered in mud in order to protect it from getting stolen from the Burmese army, who were about to invade Thailand (then called Siam). The monks that covered the Buddha were unfortunately slaughtered and the secret went with them in death.  It is reported that the gold Buddha weighs more than two and a half tons and is valued at approximately $196 million. It is ten and a half feet tall.
