This 16th century temple attests to this because it continues to be an active temple with believers and tourists flocking to marvel at its reclining Buddha, pray at its temple; and climb its stupa for a view of the temple grounds.

This place is famous for a large Chedi (stupa) which can be seen from a distance. The Chedi represents King Naresuan's glorious victory over the then Burmese Crown Prince in a duel on elephants. You can go up the stairs (quite steep) to the explore the Chedi and see Ayutthaya's view. It is always good visiting this place early in... More

The Buddha statues are varied and interesting. Bring a hat and water, as it gets intensely hot here when the clouds move away.

The grounds here are so beautiful and the many Buddha statues are impressive. Climb to the top of the temple and you have an amazing view of the grounds.

Even some of the statue and some building has lost their part but its not reduce their beauty. I came here on the afternoon and the weather was very hot, so its little bit challenging when... More

Here, one more reclined Buddha statue in Ayutthaya. Another is in Wat Lokayasutha. You can buy thin small golden sheets and attach them on to Buddha statue. Hundreds of Buddha statues have different faces and different names. Because they were made for each person's future lives who donated to build them. You can climb up to stupas with stairs made...

You can make some offerings and pray in front of the reclining Buddha. An incense seller informed us that tourists should not pose in similar way to Buddha (reclining or seating pose)... More
