This is an active temple that is just next door to Wat Phra Si Sanphet. You have to keep your shoes on the rack outside the temple and no one will touch them. The Buddha statue in the temple touches the roof. Its huge and gold. There are many other statues around and lots of pilgrims visit with pledges and... More

A beautiful temple with a beautiful Buddha statue,well maintained. Well worth a visit. Best to get a Guide or Guide book as language is a problem in Thailand. Be appropriately dressed even if its very hot, as a mark of respect to Buddhism. Also be careful of Pickpockets & Con men even though this is a temple.

This one is a fully functional temple that houses perhaps the largest Buddha statue in Ayutthaya. There is nothing to do here and the place is usually quite crowded. Not only the tourists, but the locals also visit this temple in throngs as it is a place of worship. This temple is right by the side of Wat Phra Si... More

The golden Buddha statue inside is large and impressive, the temple is clean. Mind to respect the people who come to pray here.

This is an interesting active temple, easy to reach, right beside the entrance to Wat Phra Si Sanphet, with a large Buddha statue, although Wat Phanan Choeng has perhaps an even more impressive statue.

This is one place that not ruins that I've visited during my vacation in Ayutthaya :) Although this place crowded with people who pray, but worth visit this place which we can find large Buddha statue with the same name with this place. Opening hour : 08.00 - 16.00 with free admission fee but donation accepted.

It was a bit of local ceremony at the temple and was very crowded. But the Buddha statue there was quite massive and nice place to take photos. Nice place.

The ruins known as Wat Phra Sri Sanphet are adjacent to Wiharn Phra Mongkonbopit. Here in Wilharn Phra Mongkon Bopit, there is one of the largest Buddhas dedicated to destroying Mara – the Buddhist equivalent of Satan the deceiver. Admission to this white colored temple is free. There is a market selling items to eat to the left of the... More
