Wat Yai Chai Mang Khon, Ayutthaya

(4.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Dating back to the 14th century, Wat Yai Chai Mang Khon remains one of the city's most famous and scenic holy sites. This magnificent example of Buddhist religious architecture was built by Uthong, the first ruler of the kingdom of Ayutthaya. Expanded and adorned with new buildings over the centuries, the religious complex is now famous for its imposing chedi--a large statue of reclining Buddha--and many other architectural features, as well as the peaceful and meditative atmosphere. Consider a guided tour of the complex, within easy reach from Ayutthaya city. By using our Ayutthaya vacation builder, you can arrange your visit to Wat Yai Chai Mang Khon and other attractions in Ayutthaya.

  • A Beautiful Temple to walk around photograph and absorb the atmosphere. Allow around 1 hour or more if you take in a bit more scenery.

  • A lot of tourist ! You can walk up to the pagoda and see view downstair. There is a shrine of Somdet Phra Neresuan, a king , opposite side.
  • Interesting place to visit when you are around Bangkok. Change of view, other than hectic Bangkok city. This is home for a reclining Buddha, which is reconstructed according to the ancient Buddha. Interesting architecture of old temple.
  • One of our favorite temples in Ayutthaya. There's been a fair amount of restoration so may not seem as "authentic", but it is very impressive. Home to a reclining Buddha and rows of intact Buddhas surrounding a large central stupa. Easily give yourself 45 minutes to explore!
  • Beautiful historic temple. The chedi complex is magnificent. Must see if you are in Ayuthaya
  • A working temple/monastery. Serene in beautiful surroundings, well kept and amongst the ones you must see when visiting the area.
