Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, Ayutthaya
(4.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Built in the 15th century, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet once served as the largest and holiest temple in Ayutthaya, Thailand’s ancient capital. You will recognize the attraction by its three cone-shaped chedis, said to hold the ashes of three past kings as well as relics. Burmese attacks severely damaged the site in the 18th century, and the three chedis remain the only buildings restored so far. Most people just come for a glimpse of these iconic structures, but take some time to explore the ruins of this important Thailand attraction. By using our Ayutthaya itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Wat Phra Sri Sanphet and other attractions in Ayutthaya.

  • I must say that Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is one of the most extraordinary monuments that had the privilege to contemplate. Built for centuries, served to rituals of the Thai Royal family.

  • Wat Phra Si Sanphet (Thai: วัดพระศรีสรรเพชญ์; "Temple of the Holy, Splendid Omniscient") was the holiest temple on the site of the old Royal Palace in Thailand's ancient capital of Ayutthaya until the city was completely destroyed by the Burmese in 1767. It was the grandest and most beautiful temple in the capital and it served as a model for Wat Phra Kaeo in Bangkok.
  • A must-see in Ayutthaya. Three large stupas dominate the ruins and you can hike the stairs on any one to get a better view of the surrounding ruins. Can easily spend 45min-1hr here exploring.
  • Historic destination. One of the World heritage in Thailand.
  • Beautiful place. There is a market nearby.
  • Wat Phra si sanpet is one of the old temples in Ayutthaya, UNESCO world heritage site in Thailand. Located in Ayuthhaya province, near by Bangkok around 1.20 hour.
