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.

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

Wat Naphrameru is not much to look at on the outside but it contains an extraordinarily beautiful Buddha image, well worth a visit if you're in Ayutthaya.
