    Ayutthaya is a beautiful place filled with so much history. It was founded almost 500 years ago and has many well preserved areas within the large complex of ruins. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
    Highly recommend

    The Buddha head embedded in the tree roots is the main draw here which is nicely shaded in the morning (north facing). The other interesting feature for photographers is the larger Buddha close to the tree with damaged smaller heads alongside

    Everyone goes here for late afternoon and sunset. Many Thais dressed in traditional clothing were here when we visited which makes for an interesting addition. Look out for bats in the inside of the buildings as they leave their resting space at sunset. One of the stupas is currently being restored but it does not interfere with the sunset view.

    Really loved this Wat but difficult to get to. We chose a tuk tuk. Beautiful reclining Buddha and rows of Buddha heads encircling a large stupa. Worth the visit.

    Apart from the photos of the three stupas there is not much else to see here. Close to Matahat so easily combined with others

    One of the many historic sites around this interesting city...this one was very quiet, I guess a bit out of the way, I was the only one there, cool! The weathered reclining Buddha is huge, definitely worth checking out...

    A busy working Wat with many many worshippers and various offerings. The central gold Buddha was phenomenal and dotted round the temple were prayer rooms with paintings. As you enter there are lots of Buddhas where worshippers add gold leaf as part of their offering.

    I saw the Chao Phraya river many times during my sightseeing trip to Ayuthaya. I first saw the beautiful river during my visit to the Japanese village in Ayuthaya. I again saw the river when I visited the Wat Chai watthanaram temple complex. I saw some tourist boats carrying tourist from Bangkok to Ayuthaya.

    Loved this Wat - unexpectedly so. The detailing on the main stupa and the Buddha heads and destroyed bodies dotted about the place made this photographically more interesting than others.

    Ayutthaya has many interesting attractions. I went to Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Elephant Palace with my family. There are elephants to see the city. Very cute. Take photos and get a beautiful view. There was an impressive show of elephants, they were very friendly and skillful. The food they sell is good. If there is a chance me and my family will come back.

    Nothing much at this beautiful Wat but a few hundred yards away is a very large monument to a former king. Interesting offerings including huge roosters in silver and gold mosaic

    It's a still functioning temple. The building is beautiful and exotic. The area surrounding it is also well managed and clean.

    The first thing you notice when entering this site is the large amount of rooster statues followed by the lion ones.
    According to a legend, King Naresuan defeated a burmese prince in a cockfight and people now bring roosters to this temple as offerings. You can even buy some at the temple site itself or in lots of street shops.
    The ruins of the chedi are surrounded by lion statues.
    Part of colums are still standing in the ruins of the large viharn.
    Wat Thammikarat remains an active temple.

    I was brought to visit this temple about 2 decades ago when this temple was not listed in the world heritage area of Ayutthaya province. It was not that commercialized to tourist as nowadays. Nevertheless, it is worth to visit this pure Ayutthaya temple. The Ubosot itself shows the early Ayutthaya architecture with columns inside the building. Inside the Ubosot locates a distinguished large buddha statue, furnishing with royal attire and ornaments, it is hardly seen in Thailand. Besides the Ubosot, there is a small Viharn building which has a green stone Dvaravati Buddha statue, one out of five large Dvaravati Buddha statue in Thailand. The painting inside the Viharn is also interesting to see.

    Wat Phra Ram is one of the 5 main temples in the Ayuthaya historical city. This temple was built in 1369 by a king of Ayuthaya over the cremation ground of his father. This temple has a central Pagoda and many small pagodas surrounding it. It was a great experience clicking pics amidst archeological ruins of the great Ayuthaya kingdom. I had purchased combined ticket for 220 baht from Wat Mahathat and this temple is covered under that.
