You are able to climb up to this temple. The view is beautiful. The temple has many nice details. Steps are not too hard to climb up.

Wat Phu Khao Tong. It was built to celebrate the victory of King Naresuan against Burmese. The lower base are in Burmese style while the higher one are in Ayutthaya style. You'll see some cocks statues at the enterance, it's the King favorite animal.

Nice temple which you can climb and offers an impressive view. We went here at sunset and especially then it was very nice. Well worth the drive there. There is a small temple next to it worth entering also.

Amazing place', amazing feelings, amazing people around. The place are quite vs other temples. If you love the malls and noisy plaice, this is a wrong place for you. The best transport is like always "tuk-tuk

A must visit for the devout Buddhists. The temple is so peaceful and serene. The view from above is beautiful. A good start to the journey in Ayutthaya.
