However its included in one of the 6 wats if you buy that 220 bahts ticket deal. (Otherwise separately each wat 50 baht, and if tou cant finish all in one... More

This temple is half-way between the museum and the archaeologicel park, many visitors just whisk past not knowing what they are missing. It is very ipressive, sitting in a well-kept garden, should be on any itinerary.

The temple compound houses a large prang and many chedis.In front of the temple, there is a large ond named 'Nong Sono' (every local guide will tell you about this). Although you now enter the temple complex on the western side, the original temple faced east, as you can tell from the ruins of the portico on the eastern side.... More

King Ramescuen built this temple or Wat about 1369 AD on th esite of the burial of a former king. However the building was not completed within his life time as he died in 1370 just one year after his coronation. The temple fell into bad repair but as it is in close proximity to the Royal palace it was... More

I visited Wangchang Lae Phanait and it is about a 20 minute elephant ride down the street and in front of Wat Phra Ram. It's a nice experience as you are able to see the countryside and the Wat Phra Ram Temple.

You'll take some very lovely photos at this sight, very little shade but plenty of historical atmosphere.

Personally my favourite. Seems to be off the main tour bus list. This large site has the hallmarks of Cambodia and Myanmar about it, and you pretty much have it to yourself. Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful.

The #1 attraction if you are a history buff -- a must visit.. This is in the heart center of all the activity and it's hard to be missed. You can spend hours just in this one complex taking pictures. The Ram Temple in Ayodhya -- this time destroyed by the Burmese!! At least no controversy here...

This was my favorite among the many beautiful temples of this temple city. It is worth visiting Ayutthya and take it easy with your bike
