The historical sites in Ayuttaya are worth a visit. I dont think you need 3 days as you can easily rent a scooter, which is my recommendation, as some of the sites are further apart and especially Wat Chai Wattanaram and Chai Mongkul are quite a bit outside the centre. And last mentioned sites arr at least my favorites. Renting... More

This is a very nice temple, with 3 big temples close to each other. You can enjoy the view from across the temple, under the tree if you want to relax. Many people take photos at the top of the stairs, and others try to capture from below. I bring only my 24mm lens on apsc camera, I couldnt get... More

Wat Phra Sri Sanphet was founded in the 15th century as a state temple. Later rules added the Chedis to house the remains of their ancestors. The Burmese made an end to this in 1776. After that the complex fell into disrepair until restoration in the early 20th century stopped further decay. It still looks great despite the lack of... More

Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is located in the heart of Ayutthaya History Park. Here, from a far distance you can see the Big Pagoda. it's very big, you can climb on. also the green lawn, many trees.

I had a great afternoon riding bike to see all historical sites in ancient city of Ayutthaya. Wat Phra Sri Sanphet was so worth it. Breathtakingly beautiful and well kept.

I really enjoyed walking these temple grounds. It is a nice place, and it has been preserved rather well. The buildings are in good shape. Entrance fee is 50 baht, and there is also a nice park and another buddhist temple nearby!

Ayutthaya is a whole other world of temples and beautiful architecture. If you want to experience a thousand years worth of changes all in one place this is an amazing experience. The rulers have changed so much over the years you can literally see the remains of desecrated statues everywhere. Very unique. Some advice: Hire a driver, or rent a... More

Notable for the 3 extant chedi in the middle of the site this is perhaps my favourite of the sites in Ayutthaya. Very impressive but unforgiving in the lack of shade.

Another must stop in Ayutthaya Holy City, with only 3 chedis still standing (partially reconstructed, of course) and terraces defying time. Recommended to visit after hot season, and before 5pm.It was one of the most impressive works of the Old Royal Palace.

We came here as part of our cycling tour, and I wrote another review including this site for "Ayutthaya Historic National Park". The place lovely and the entrance fee is very cheap. There is also a lovely temple next to it which is free.
