Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Part of Ayutthaya Historical Park, Wat Panan Choeng represents a Buddhist temple built in the 12th century and features a large, gold, seated Buddha. This particular Buddha image is very important for Thais and Thai-Chinese, who considered it the guardian of mariners. Zheng He, a Chinese Muslim admiral, famously visited this attraction in the 15th century and offered gifts to the temple. Remember to dress respectfully and wear long pants and sleeves.

  • Good beautiful seasons-crate Moss. I Is the oldest temple of Phra Nakhon SI Ayutthaya. Saturdays and Sundays, there will be many who visit lot. But, if it came, would have seen the beauty of the Lord, and will have the ability to have a great time!

  • For those who look for that measure, this one makes the mind peaceful. Luang Phor Toh enshrined in it are accessible to everyone, the mid-autumn item.

  • I came here in a big buddhist day, so it's very crowded. Big temple. Too many people. There is a sign in front of the Charpel that you can lose your shoes!
  • This place is well known for the assembly hall where a big Buddha image is housed and adorned. Locally referred to as Luang Pho To, the statue is approximately 19 meter high. The temple is always busy, with locals and tourists paying respect to this Buddha image.
  • This is my second favorite Buddha of the ones I visiting it Thailand. The massive golden Buddha is close to 100 feet high, and takes up the space of the majority of the room. We are all crammed into the room admitting the Buddha. This is definitely a must see when visiting Ayutthaya.
  • If i am in town, this is one of the places I always visit. Should go on weekdays to avoid crowd.
  • This temple is still active. Very crowded. From an archeological point of view it has very little to say. Not recommended.
