You may be 'templed out' but don't miss this site off your itinery. One of the largest Buddhas on the planet. Pay your money and go though to the three cairns still in good condition and cry meaningful and thought provoking.

On this trip I stayed just a night in Ayutthaya, arriving around lunchtime and departing again the next morning. I spent the entire afternoon there at Wat Phra Si Sanphet and it was beautiful. I stayed near where the vans from Victory Monument in Bangkok arrives, and just walked from there (it's a leisurely 20mins stroll). So you can actually... More

This is one of the most significant ancient ruins of Ayutthaya. It is beautiful and even when some parts seem crowded with tourists, you can still find quiet corners that give a sense of the abandoned ruins. It is an amazing site with many scenes for the eyes. The jujube trees are beautiful at all times of the year. Don't... More

This is a very impressive wat and well worth a visit, though I actually enjoyed some of the other ruins in the area more, such as Wat Phra Mahathat or Wat Chai Wattanaram, perhaps because I went at a less busy time.

The scale of the site gives some sense of the size and magnificence of the city as it was. Several of the sites around Ayuttaya are located in busy areas where traffic noise spoils the effect, but this site was peaceful. Not many visitors so easy to get unspoiled pictures all around the site. General complaint about Ayuttaya sites is... More

The 3 bell shapped chedis were a great symbol of the glorious ancient Ayutthaya Kingdom. It was built by King Boromatrailokanat in 1448, proportionally impressive and architecturally elegant. The chedis are located right near the entrance and the imposing gigantic structures loom surprisingly like three towering big bells going to cover you up. The surface of the chedis were greyish...

This ruins is beautiful with its three chedis. Same location with royal palace and wat phra mongkonbopit with entrance fee 50 bath. Came here at noon when the weather very hot. Better go here morning or evening.

Most sites in Ayutthaya are very similar bright red bricks. The three Chedis at Wat Phra Si Sanphet are slightly different being more white in colour although time has taken it's toil and is now blackish stone work. The spiral shape tops of the Chedis look like someone has iced them on. Great place to spend some time.
