This temple has a huge statue of reclining Buddha which makes feel very small when you first see it. There is also a tall stupa that has pretty steep stairs. Somehow, this place seems hotter than other complexes in Ayutthaya.

Must see. If you are in old Siam take the time to see this beautiful piece. This completed the temple tour for us and I was truly impressed with the detail and restoration not needed to date.

This place is in the historic district near Ayutthaya. A great setting from some ruins from the 1300's. There are some towers which are in various states of preservation and courtyards full of Buddhas. There is a 50 ft long reclining Buddha set around another courtyard, with lots of people paying homage to the site. A nice stop for further... More

Great heritage of Ayutthaya empire. Built in simple materials. Cheap entrance fee, and accessible spot. I suggest to ride motorcycle to reach this place.

The day was perfect with nice sunshine and cloudy blue sky. That day was flooded with little Thai school children, that was perfect for my photographs.

We went here upon the recommendation of our hotel owner and we were not disappointed. This was the first temple on our Ayutthaya itinerary and it was a fairly good introduction to the grandeur of the entire Ayutthaya temple complex. The main chedi of Yai Chai Mang Khon is already visible from a considerable distance. As we drew near, we... More

This is a very old and beautiful temple. When you come through the front, you might be confronted with many tourists, but if you walk more towards the back, you find that it feels like you're by yourself and serenity is yours. Don't forget to put on sunscreen and bring your sunglasses and a hat as the sun is quite... More
