Went on weekday, it was nice and quiet. Not so many people/ tourist. The big Buddha of the temple is just flawlessly beautiful.

This temple is actively served by monks who hold daily prayers and you can request to be blessed there as well. Visited there with family including two kids which can be spiritually uplifting depending on your level of acceptance and blessings. Its one thing looking at the sites or taking pictures, its another thing being blessed or taking something with... More

This temple including the huge bronze Buddha have been restored and makes a very impressive site. It benefits from being next to Wat Phra Si Sanpet which is one of the more impressive Temple ruins. It should not be missed if you are visiting Ayutthaya

This is a small temple that drives you to the end of your walk through Ayutthaya historical area. You will find two emmerald Buddhas inside. Very special when there many prayers.

Housed in the building is a large bronze Buddha. You can walk around inside the building around the Buddha and see other bits and pieces. We preferred the ruins located nearby much more. Scattered around locally are lots more very old ruins. You can walk up the steep stairs to the door however you cannot access it. Another fantastic opportunity... More

The temple is well known for its huge bronze seated Buddha statue. It is one of Ayutthaya's smaller temples, but the sheer scale of the bronze Buddha makes it unmissable.

This temple actually is not a ruin, even though it has been on and off. The 12 metre Buddha must have been exposed to the open air sometime last century. Now it is enclosed in a beautiful Wiharn, and it's really worth spending some time in and around the temple. There is no admission fee and a large open air... More

The temple interior view will impress you since it look ordinary from outside. Visited this temple during festive season where the devotees changes the huge Buddha robe.

Very nice inside but very low profile if you don't know. Better plan well to easily go at first. I was surprised when I got inside.
