Wat Phra Si Sanphet is an iconic fight to behold. While there are many Wats in Ayutthaya, this one is unique with the 3 large stupas standing along side, and they are generally in good condition. You can find imagine the grandeur in the past when the structures were all standing tall and proud.

You can visit Phra Mingkhon Bophit next door too.

Apart from the photos of the three stupas there is not much else to see here. Close to Matahat so easily combined with others

The city on which Bangkok was modeled. You can go inside the temple and see the beautiful big Buddha. Then just a quick walk you can see the amazing ruins. Amazing!

In the early tears of the Ayutthaya Kingdom, the capital's grand Royal Palace would have stood on this spot. But it was destroyed and a new one was built a few meters to the north. Wat Phra Si Sanphet became the royal temple of Ayutthaya and was where the most important ceremonies held. Unlike most religious centers in the city, no monks live within the complex.

The three distinctive stupa in the center of Wat Phra Si Sanphet make one of the most iconic temples of Ayutthaya. It was considered to be the most beautiful complex in the city and used as the inspiration for Wat Phra Kaew known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.

Large open ground temple with multiple stupas. It gets hot and lacks shade from midday so be warned. But this, as well as surrounding temples, is well worth a visit if you're in the city. It's a short walk from the road and has royal chambers nearby which is more noticeable from the road.
Take a hat and a lot of photos

The Well Kept Ancient Ruins of the old royal temple of the Ayutthaya Era look beautiful during day time and impressive at night time.

It is a beautiful temple that is ancient and old. People like to take pictures and admire the beauty of the temple. During the filming here, people tend to take pictures in different locations as if they were in a movie set. which is personal preference.

This temple was built in the 14th century and was destroyed in 1767.

The highlight of this temple is the three large stupas standing at the center of the temple, which quite in good condition.

The stupas were built for containing relics of Kings of Ayutthaya."
