  • Mid june 2017 place is under heavy remoldelation and can't climb up. Beautiful wat in a quiet area
  • Less crowd, great structure. Among green fields.
  • Is under construction. Too far from city and it is just one big structure where you just walk one circle.
  • The original temple inspired the present Golden Mountain temple in Bangkok. Located in the middle of the rice field outskirt of Ayutthaya, a bit touristy but not as crowded as the major temples inside the old town.
  • Very serene. Hardly visited. Foc entry. Can climb up with great view.
