The lore says the principal Buddha image of this temple "cried" when Ayutthaya was sacked by the Burmese in ancient history, so local people are strongly attached to it. The temple building is a beautiful example of architectural inspired by the lines of a boat. The main point of interest is actually the stone Buddha image in the smaller shrine... More

Great late Ayuthaya architect temple. This temple was use as barrack camp when the Hongsa invaded Ayuthaya. Therefore, The Buddha and the temple itself are all original art work. Love to be there.

We did not stay long and it is part of our cycling tour. But it is lovely to learn something about buddhism and how you can tell apart common and royal temples. It is popular among the locals.

We didn’t spend too long at Wat Naphrameru, but I think it is one of those iconic places within the Ayutthaya Historical Park that should be seen. The highlight of this place is its 6 meter tall golden Buddha image, located in the Ordination Hall and believed to date from the Late Ayutthaya period. It was constructed of metal and... More

Made a wrong turn and whilst doing a U turn I noticed something a little bit strange so please look at the pics. To the left of the temple as you enter there are 3 chedis which are in a bit of disrepair and I’m sure that doesn’t surprise you but one of them has been taken over by a... More

This temple is worth visiting and is of historical significance helping you piece together the whole history of the area. It is a working temple. It appears to be favored by chinese tourists as the large Buddha statue makes a photogenic backdrop, their is a monk giving blessings for a fee, a metal 'gong' to sound and daily bowls to... More

We visited here on our day trip and it was a nice place to see. There is not much to say about what makes this temple unique but it was beautiful and a pleasant place to visit. The gilded Buddha was good though.

Wat Na Phra Men (or NaPhrameru) - you'll find different signs around town - is a stone's throw off the 'island' of Ayutthaya to the north, clearly visible on every map. But on trip advisor's map it's to the south - wrong, sorry. Sometimes you'll have to pay 20 Baht, this time I didn't pay, don't know why. In any... More
