Wat Na Phra Men (or NaPhrameru) - you'll find different signs around town - is a stone's throw off the 'island' of Ayutthaya to the north, clearly visible on every map. But on trip advisor's map it's to the south - wrong, sorry. Sometimes you'll have to pay 20 Baht, this time I didn't pay, don't know why. In any... More

There are small gardens around the temple and some side buildings housing more Buddha statues including a laughing Buddha (Chinese style). More Buddha statues are kept out in the open under a shed.

More Buddha statues can be found here! We spent less than thirty minutes at this location! The laughing Buddha statue is one of the attraction and inside the building is another Buddha statue that described as a "rare image adorned in Royal attire"...! The monastery building also shows off the tradi on Ayutthaya architectural design according to our tour guide... More

I was pleasantly surprised to discover a beautiful rooftop with dancing figurines at the back of the temple. How easy to miss it! There is a central figurine standing on the shoulders of a yaksha chedi.

As this temple complex was not destroyed, it shows how the temples in Ayutthaya looked- so it's worth a visit.

I am a temple and buddha statue fan so I liked this temple. Nice statues and very quiet place. If you have time, visit, if not, you can skip this.

This Wat, a fine example of early Ayutthaya design, houses an ancient Bhudda in royal attire. This temple was spared destruction as it housed the Burmese military. Well worth a visit if nearby.

If you have the time see this temple as its smaller than most temples, but worth a visit. Be appropriately dressed even if its very warm as a mark of respect to Buddhism.

A nice temple, nothing great, but full of history, the best option is to get a Guide or Guidebook as language is a problem in Thailand. Be aware of Con men & Pickpockets at all times even if its a temple.
