The worshippers came to this temple continuously

After drinking a cup of coffee, I started to walk again. And I reached the end of Chinatown finally. There was a roundabout and a big gate of Chinatown stood in the center of it. I knew there was a famous Buddhist temple near the roundabout. So I headed for the temple.

The temple was called Wat Trimit. According to the guidebook, this temple is famous for the Golden Buddha statue. Yet I thought there were many golden Buddha statues in Bangkok. It would rather uncommon to see Buddha statues which were not gold here.

Anyway, the worshippers came to pray in an endless stream. The golden statue which was found from the plaster in a disused temple was thought of as pious. When I entered the hall which was built on the top of the hill, a woman was just praying.
