  • Redundant (and expected) to see Buddhas in profusion, under different formats, sizes, and colors, in visits to the temples of Thailand. There are so many nuances, that given time, barely discern or even distinguish one from the other. Indeed, it is the worship of all of them is Pacific point. Try not to commit gaffes.

  • Roosters. Well, really rooster figurines/statues. Hundreds of 'em. All over the place. Some as high as eight feet tall, maybe taller. Well the Temple is apparently older than Ayutthaya itself. And why...  more »
  • Not seen too much with other Ayutthaya WAT Thammikarat, landscape, it is very interesting. In particular, liked the statue of Rooster (rooster) is ranking number. When I visited Thailand ISAN (Northeastern) towards the statue of Rooster (rooster), but Wat Thammikarat Rooster (rooster) is a number of very often. There was powerful. I think it is worth seeing. It is also interesting because only the face of the Buddha statue, standing Buddha image in Ayutthaya don't. Was like that from the very interesting temples, was good to go.

  • Only one nice attraction. And 20 bath entrance fee
  • It took me 25 minutes from Ratchaburana to this ruin. Entry 50 bath. This one was not on my list initially, I arrived there only by chance. It is one of the lesser visited ruins but I treasured it the most. Nowadays, it is, in fact, a working temple. When I entered the chapel, I was greeted by a monk, I was shocked by it because I was under the understanding that they could not interact with women; it felt truly special! he invited me near his post, he did some sort of chant on me, and then he put a bracelet on my wrist. It was really nice, it felt so peaceful. The most outstanding ruins here was a chedi, surrounded by lion’s statues. I noticed numerous rooster statues as well, which has some sort of story about a cook fight between Burmese and Ayutthaya royals.
  • This 830 years old temple is very interesting.
  • A place where you can get to interact with buddhist monks and spend time in he lawns that are maintained.
  • Smaller, but more intimate
