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.

There wasn't a lot to see here. But, it has a very convenient location being located right next to the old capital ruins. So,it could be worth a few minutes to stop by if nothing more than to just say you were there.

We came here first and it was so hot we weren't in the mood to drive anywhere else to look at other ruins or temples. Seemed like a waste to drive an hour here and not see anything else...but it was painfully hot and scorching. We came after spending 3 hours at Chutuchak market so it was about 2pm by... More

The imposing Bronze Buddha is a great attraction. Also visit the extensive ruins adjacent to the temple.
