Lovely view

A bit crowded but you get to have the best view of Ayutthaya from this place. the steps to the top if this temple is steep. You also get to see monks roaming around the place.

This temple is a tuk-tuk ride from town but definately worth the visit. The views from the top are great. And there are a lot of buddha statues, a lot! Beautiful.

A real eye catcher this temple, I took heaps of photos, there is a great view from the top of the pagoda, better than the historical ruins in the old town.

It would be a good idea to go there early in the day to avoid the heat of the sun and the crowd of people. Considering the date of our visit,... More
