Nice and beautiful place to walk around.The ruins were maintained as I came here at least three times since 1990. Every time, I came to Bangkok, I would spend a few hours in this park. I will be back.

Our family enjoyed very much in Ayutthaya. the old city is very interesting and unique but during July because of the heat, is almost impossible to travel and walk over the Wats and the old city

In addition to Wat Phra Mahthat, this one is one of the top sites in Ayutthaya. It has 3 massive stupas (or chedis) which are Singalese style (as opposed to Thai or Cambodian) and also hosts a temple with a massive golden Buddha covered with over 150Kg of Gold. The site is big.

this place is full of history and is great to get a small booklet they sell for 20 bath at the entrance of the complex. It explains everything of every historical site which can help you to understand the context of the structure! Highly recommended!

One of the better ones to visit while in Ayanttuya. We were in town for 3 days, and I would advise to stay in town for at least one night. This allows to see the many temple complexes (like this one).

If people go in Thailand it is definitely worth a visit this place and spend an hour between these ancient ruins.

Ayutthaya is dotted with ancient sites.. and one of them is this place. Plan a half day visit starting with the ruins and follow by other attractions around it - Wat Phramongkon Bophit, Elephiant Park and souvenir stalls. Main attraction is the 3 Stupas. Take your time to venture around the site and admlre the craftmanship of the bygone era.... More
