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.

A touristy anti-climax set amongst beautiful ancient ruins. This modern monstrosity seems to be on the tourist trail when you visit Ayutthaya. It is walking distance from Wat Phra Si Sanphet and close to the main car park. It houses a large bronze Buddha. Most unusal sight was the assortment of offerings on display infront of the buddha. Buckets full... More

A must see site with lots of photographic opportunities. Lots to see but 1 hour is all that is needed. Often appears busy but the crowds do not stay long. Early morning /evening is best Lots more around this to see as well

It is kind of tucked in the temple, in between high collumns, and connected to all the other side images by strings. Very interesting, it signals for the unification of all images with the central one. Lots of monks can be... More
