Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, Ayutthaya

4.6
Must see · Ruin · Religious Site
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. Put Wat Phra Sri Sanphet on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ayutthaya road trip planning website.

  • Three very impressive spiral structures surrounded by fairly spacious ruins. Well worth taking a slow walk all the way around to enjoy from all angles. It's a popular site so this would be a good one to hit first thing in the morning.
  • The most beautiful ancient temple in Ayutthaya!! Very hot but there are many big trees to hide from sunburn. I would recommend this place to the visitors who have a short stay to Ayutthaya!
  • I liked the his site. It is very beautiful and has a magic atmosphere. The three pagodas give a good impression of the former glory. Worth visiting.
  • Amazing place to visit. Ideally visit in the morning or in the evening as it's less crowded. Lots of things to see around as well.
  • As a person who loves ruins and the history behind it, this is one of many great historical sites, and this is also one of the most important temple from ayuthaya kingdom. Great temple, great history and love the ancient architectural landscape around this temple.
