Wat Yai Chai Mang Khon

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

Loved the endless rows of Buddha statues draped with robes, but it was crowded with locals and I felt like an intruder.

I enjoyed this temple because you are able to walk up the stairs and to the top of a very tall temple that has great expansive views of the grounds below, other temples and off into the distance. Makes for some great pics.

This was a nice place to visit, unfortunately there was no one to give us some information on this temple or a story behind it. It's a good place to take pictures to mark your presence in Ayutthaya 😊 entrance was 20 THB.

This place is amazing. You can find so many Buddhas of all sizes around the area, even a huge reclining buddha. What I found more interesting is when you go to the top of the temple you can see all the local people buying gold paper in pieces to stick it to the different buddhas inside the place.

We have visited this Wat before, but this time for the first time with our five kids (6-18). They all found something interesting to look at in these templegrounds. From nicely wrapped statues, a good view after a steep climb, strange offerings etc. We spent three hours exploring, great!
