I would like to know whether wait() method belongs to class Thread or it belongs to class object? Since, when wait() is implemented in classes it is just called as wait() and not being called by any object inside a synchronous method.

Well the wait() method is public in Object which means it is inherited by every class including Thread.

What's important is the thread that calls the wait() method. Whatever thread calls it will place itself into the waiting state.
