Wat Yai Chai Mang Khon, Ayutthaya

(4.4/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • Visited on the tour half-day from Bangkok. Reclining Buddha is small, and climb up the pagoda. * There's quite inclined seniors and children are aware that. Around the pagoda sitting Buddha was extraordinary.

  • And buy the 3-piece set (flowers, candles and thin gold leaf paper) used to pray at first, according to the Thailand-worshipped in the temple. Beautiful silhouette then located near the pagoda, the view was spectacular. Also surrounding the around the statue around the stupa dressed in yellow robes are located, was amazing.
