The only temple in the city that wasn't destroyed by the war. It is constructed in the late-Ayutthaya-period architecture style. Make sure you visit a small vihara (next to ubosot) which is home to a huge 14th century standing stone Buddha image.

You can park car in the temple inside. Not so wide area, but there is a big temple there. Go inside and sit as Thailand people and have rest. Very big Buddha statue and high tall columns made me feel sunk down to the floor. Outside in the yard, there is a statue which has many faces - 6 or... More

Wat Na Phra Meru is the only from the Ayutthaya period in the city that remains intact. It was not destroyed in the Thai-Burmese wars because the Burmese army camped here. For that visitors should be thankful because the temple has not one but two beautiful Buddha images. The newer one is in the front building. Covered in gleaming gold,... More

this was by far the most important Wat for our daughter. She loved the story about the tear of the buddha statue. Based on the history the buddha statue had a tear in his eye just a few days before the attack of the Burmese who burned the whole city down. In the movie "the king & I" the king... More

Judging from its exterior, this temple is neither the grandest nor the most atmospheric in Ayutthaya so an average camera-wielding tourist won't find it that exciting. But it is the sole survivor of the Second Fall of Ayutthaya (1765-1767) when the city that once rivalled European capitals was completely burnt down. Because the Burmese camped here, this historically significant wat... More

This place has one of the most beautiful and undestroyed buddha image inside. Good to sit and calm down watching stunning budda image.

Was a bit disappointed - expected more. There are other, far more charming temples & ruins in the area, so don't expect to stay here long.

nice temple site (partial new build in my opinion). Lot of services in this temple. Lot of thai people in this active temple. Great buddha statue and surrounding statues and holi men/monks

This temple is the war survivor. Small but original & still active. On the day of my visited, I saw celebration of young man became a monk there. When the other temples close at 6p.m., this one close at 4p.m.
