  • This wat was one of my favorites in Ayutthaya, and we saw a bunch of them! Best in the morning, no shade here.  more »

  • I love this place as compared to the others in Ayutthaya. The pics are self-explanatory :) Must go!
  • Lovley place..best time is to visit is early morning or evening..visitng on sunny day will make you uncomfortable as thr is no shade
  • 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)
