Nice temple and monastary in a huge park

Want to see 1000+ roosters (statues) - then go to this Wat and take your time to wander around the park, which is really nice!

The site is poorly taken care of, nothing like the photo actually. It is partially covered with a pale piece of cloth and everything there is pale. It has no life.

Actually well worth the visit. Great stupa to climb and wonderful surroundings. I know it's easy to get 'temple fatigue' but fit his one into your itinerary at least.

It was close to noon when we reached this temple as part of the Ayutthaya tour by Oriental Escape. It was extremely hot making it a very uncomfortable even though it was December. But the temple was very beautiful with a large reclining Buddha which is still worshiped by locals. People were offering an orange robe to the Buddha. There... More

We cycled around the city and saw many wats and ruins and this was one of them. Great for pictures. Similar in size to the reclining Buddha in Bangkok.

out of the town, we were biking to this place. we could not find it so we took a tuktuk to bring us. it is a famous Wat, so be early for your visit. I hoped to see a row of boeddha's with orange scarves, but that wasn't so; probably washing day.

This site is beautiful! Not sure if it's well known, but we saw it on the map and decided to check it out. Wow!! Great surprise!! Grounds immaculate. Reclining Buddha (yes, another one) but just as equally beautiful. Draped in an orange cloth repeatedly. For a fee can be in line to cover the Buddha. Can see rows and rows... More

Very busy and difficult to take photos on the day I visited. Personally I preferred Wat Mahathat, but still worth a visit.

This is my second time visiting Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon (วัดใหญ่ชัยมงคล) and I'm sure it won't be the last. Both visits have been very memorable. The admission price for foreigners is 20 Baht and, as with most touristy temples, free for natives. Pretty affordable compared to a lot of other touristy things to do in Thailand. The temple grounds are... More
