This is a great temple, serene, clean and you can concentrate to perform your worship of Lord Buddha. Unlike other temples which aim for commercial purposes, this temple is really for the devotees.

This was the first stop on our day trip around Ayutthaya. From the crowd, we can see at once that it is very popular with many visitors. There is a sleeping buddha and many buddha statues clad with saffron robe. In addition, there is also a pagoda that allowed visit to climb to the top (be careful of the small... More

Not worth seeing, this was the last out of the seven things to see, look so dirty not old, I think this one needs attention, even my friends didn't like like.

This obviously is one of the major temples in the Ayutthaya area, and both tourists and local worshippers visit this place. This Wat stays open till 6 P.M. and you can take better pictures if you come a bit later in the afternoon. Recommended for first time travelers. Protip: Look for the reclining Buddha, worth to see.

If you are starting your tour of Ayutthaya, this is a good entry point. The reclining Buddha is impressive and the area is fairly quiet. The occasional bus might roll in but it's more placid than other attractions. You can buy the incense and candle to to place at the alter but no one is pushing sales. There are a... More

20 minutes max. The size is impressive but that wears off after a few minutes. Nice site and be respectful.

The temple is very beautiful and worth the sweaty bike trip to see it. The buddhas are very well-kept and it's alive, many people go there to pray. However, it's the first time ever I saw signs of carrying your bag in front not in back. How rediculous is that for a temple?? That's something I normally do in a... More

A medium sized temple complex with a few Buddha statues and one high center building with a shrine on the top. When i went there were allot of other tourists so if you want to take a nice picture you will have to wait a few minutes to be able to. There is a small access that gives out on... More
