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

Unlike most of the temples in Ayutthaya, this temple is small and fully functioning. It houses a huge Buddha Statue in the rare "Regal Attire". There are small gardens around the temple and some side buildings housing more Buddha statues including a laughing Buddha (Chinese style). More Buddha statues are kept out in the open under a shed. The temple... More

More Buddha statues can be found here! We spent less than thirty minutes at this location! The laughing Buddha statue is one of the attraction and inside the building is another Buddha statue that described as a "rare image adorned in Royal attire"...! The monastery building also shows off the tradi on Ayutthaya architectural design according to our tour guide... More
