The place has a magnificent ruin along with an active temple. It was well worth the steep climb to visit the 6 Buddhas in the dome and make my offering. The ruins too are well dressed. Wished I could have stayed longer to enjoy the magnificence of the place.

Another beautiful temple withy a reclining Buddha statue. Full of history, so the best option is to take a Guide or Guide book, to get the facts as language is a great problem in Thailand. Be aware of the heat but be appropriately dressed as a mark of respect to Buddhism.

This was our second favourite place in Ayatthuya while both are locate outside of island. This place is very peaceful, there is a monastery in this place too. You can easily spend couple of hours walking around and enjoying your time and view because it is not so overcrowded as temples on the island. The river located next to temple... More

The complex has the tallest pagoda in the city. It also houses a fully functional temple and a lot of monks live in the premises. There also is a big statue of reclining Buddha, which people mistakenly call the sleeping Buddha. The pagoda is flanked by two giant Buddha statues. The complex also has 100 s of smaller Buddha statues... More

This site is still a working temple where the monks freely go about their duties and good works. It has a large reclining Buddha outside and a most wonderful and peaceful atmosphere even with the tourists. Well worth a visit and do climb to the top and look at the view.

This monastery is still functioning, people go and pray here and you will find monks, both male and female (in white robes) here. It features a statue of a reclining buddha and also a great chedi you can climb.
