  • Another obligatory stop of the temples to see outside Bangkok! The place has been restored because of climatic and weather damage. The tower and famous for its crypt, below ground, which is decorated with beautiful frescoes. Note: the tower is also home to many bats.

  • I love this place as compared to the others in Ayutthaya. The pics are self-explanatory :) Must go!
  • Naturally maintained remains of the ancient city. Few towers were under construction. At the time of visit (Nov 2016), the entrance fee was free in commemoration of King's death. No shades at all so be prepared to drink a lot of water and rest along the way.
  • Calm and peaceful place with few visitors, lot to climb up and down here at this monument(temple)
  • : It took me 9 minutes from Mahathat to this ruin. Entry 50 bath, something about this temple is the detailed carving of lotus. I climbed inside the prang and visited the crypt (not recommended for those afraid of heights)
  • If u can, should go down stair to see the historic painting but should be very be careful.
