  • Relics at its best. Must have been a very grand temple palace in those ages. Must visit place while in Ayuthaya. Explore hiring a tuktuk from the Ayuthaya station.

  • I was surprised when standing front of this place. Good place to visit, especially in afternoon cause you can view river front of temple. Can enjoy the boat tour as well. In afternoon,time of sunset, you feel so peaceful when listen many birds's sounds back their nests. Peaceful in countryside! The attractive point in ancient capital!
  • Yet another great temple! Very nice structures and well preserved. This was our last stop and it took us another 20 min to see everyone and to take many photos. Highly recommended!
  • UNESCO world heritage says all. Impressive temple complex reminding of glorious Siam time.Fun fact is there are several shops you can rent traditional clothes and costumes that makes this aces very special seeing all the people looking like hundreds of years ago.
  • An amazing place! A sense of the closeness of history. The complex is being reconstructed, the territory is being cared for. According to the meter, there are 120 Buddha statues (also without heads). You can recreate a scene from the old Mortal Kombat film (part of the film was shot in this complex). I recommend you to visit. The price is 50 THB.
  • One of the most famous historical temple in Ayutthaya. As know as temple in Thai local drama series. View from the river side is very nice. In front of this temple has some rental shop for ancient dress for photography.
