  • I really like the Wat Rachaburana. Itr is very close to the Wat Mahathat, inside the island. However, very people visit this temple. The design, ornamentation, and architecture are stunning. Pay atten...  more »
  • Situated just across the road on the north side from the WAT mahathat. You can climb the pagoda is located at the back of the building of the temple roof fell. Compared to Wat mahathat was hungry significantly.

  • Watching the treasure from the WAT ratchaburana Khan Museum, visiting the temple. As an important historical site and one of the most oldest in. The temple has a large capital in. but the ruins and Arch. Prang is part elegant staircase, see prang Chairman above? how much does not ascend. Walk down here and a little scary, so were enough on top of it there is a down side to not dare to me. Viewed stand remove the earring.

  • I love this place as compared to the others in Ayutthaya. Right from the entrance to the interior. It could be also because it is one of the most well preserved one left around there. The pics are self-explanatory :) The walk right up to the pagoda already makes you like this place. The long hallway/courtyard that used to be. Inside the pagoda, you can go right down via a flight of very steep steps. Might be challenging for some. Must go if you are there - you can skip the rest, but not this one.
  • Good experience with heritage. You can explore inside chedi/pagoda to discover how the ancient people kept treasure. (The treasure was remove and display at Chao Sam Phraya National Museum)
  • One of another important temple in Ayuthaya Era. And there is a secret dungeon which use to keep a precious things, which now are on display in Sam Pra ya Museum. But now the dungeon is closed because of the technical problem. I have no idea when it will open again.
  • Beautiful and Peaceful temple ... Must have to visit this temple !!! Don't miss
  • This temple, build in the XV century by the King Rachathirat II on the cremation site of his 2 brothers, who died fighting for the throne. The tower or prang, in khmer stylé is superbe.
