If you are in Ayutthaya, it’s ok to make a stop and visit this 4th longest reclining Buddha in Thailand. Don’t think it’s worth the effort if you are coming to Ayutthaya just to visit this one site. However, as part of an overall Ayutthaya itinerary - this is an ok 15-20 minutes stop.

One stop organized by our tour company, but this leaning buddha was made of plasta and not stone (recently refurbished), so not comparable to the Reclining Buddha in Bangkok. However, i enjoyed visiting one of the vendors in the stalls across from thus structure and bought a hand made piece of art hammered from water buffalo skin. Very beautiful. I should have bought a few more.

We had visited this ancient temple dedicated to Lord Buddha during our sightseeing in Ayuthaya. No entrance ticket is required here. Main attraction of this place is the giant sculpture of the reclining Buddha at the entrance. The temple has a central Pagoda and smaller ones around it though most of them are in ruins. Devotees were offering flowers and praying before the reclining Buddha.

We took a Tuk Tuk from Chao Sam Phraya Museum to this place. There are 3 ruins nearby which includes the Wat Wora Pho, Wat Wora Chet Tha Ram and Wat Lokaya Sutha. This is not the best kept ruin and there was no crowd here. The main attraction here is the reclining Buddha. The ground behind the Buddha consisted of brick ruins along the ground.

Entry to this site, as well as the two other ruins mentioned, is free. The place was quite warm, therefore carry a hat, sun lotion and lots of water. We spend about 45 minits here. Best to have your own transport as it may be difficult to get one here.

We approached this reclining Buddha on foot, from behind, and wow! We could not believe how huge it was, and that there was almost no one there! It's a bit of a farther walk from Wat Mahathat, but so worth it! It is worth the effort, as you may have Buddha all to yourself. There are several snack and souvenir stands nearby. Enjoy!

In fact, not much to see except the reclining Buddha with a length of approximately 40 meters.
As for the rest of this Wat, only some minor ruins remain.

I only went there as I love street fighter 2. Worth it - it's free. I made a video with a random cool Japanese tourist of us playing in real life. Friend for life.

It is unbelievable statue of Buddha , huge and very unusual. However sad to see how it's getting affected with climate and not much of the protective screens or shelter is done

It is from one of the 14 objects of Ayutthaya Historic Park.
When you visit this park you will see all of them together with this one...
It is a huge reclining statue and should definitely not miss it because it is probably from one of the best resting Buddha figures.

While many people may find this attactraction dull, the sheer fact that this was carved from stone and brought to this location is amazing. Trying to understand how this piece of artwork came about, why at this location, and how it was done really heightens the mind on how historically cultures were able to manage these feats.
