    More money should be really up to the same visit to the floating market, toward the opposite of meditation Center, Wat mayeng.

    The old temple that has a much wider area. Quiet a historical consciousness, introspection and prosperous. In simple but might need a private car.

    This temple is located in the area of the floating market, behind the train station, although the remains still give an idea of its grandeur, unfortunately did not remain so great. When I went I unfortunately was closed and I could see it only from the outside

    Not overwhelmingly large, but there is enough nice stuff to provide lots of Instagram posts. As an added bones there are many real nice cats all over

    The major buildings in this temple are its chedi (stupa) and ubosot (ordination hall). The chedi's platform is supported by 80 sculpted elephants, and its ubosot is currently under worship.

    If you have the time for exploring some of the temples on the outskirts of Ayutthaya, this is one of the suggested ones. If you're tight on time, skip it and opt for Wat Yaichaimongkol instead. There is a collapsed grand hall that contains the remnants of a Buddha (more like stacked rocks) and a broken stupa, but we felt there are some more impressive ruins in the area of you have limited time.
