Free entry, fans inside but no air conditioning.... A nice stop to refresh between the ruins, pretty impressive and worth a stop if you're in the area but not on the level of the Buddha statues you can see in Bangkok. There is also a nice little market with reasonable prices right next to the temple.

The good place to visit. You can see the large buddha inside of temple. In the same area, you can see chinese temple that there are many spot for take a pictures.

In the final, you can spend your time for feed fish with bread. There are many large fish in the river near the temple.

If you have not seen enough big gold Buddhas in Asia, Wat Panan Choeng offers up another one to be impressed by. The easiest way to see the temple complex is to take the late afternoon/sunset boat trip around the island as it will be one of the stops and its not on the actual island - so I don't know how you would otherwise get to it...

There was some sort of a ceremony going on while I was there and it was quite the thing to watch. Very traditional wat from what I'm told, and the oldest in town. If you're around this is worth seeing.

This is another one of the many Buddhas in Ayutthaya. It is larger than many which is the only reason I give it four instead of three stars. Other than the size of the Buddha, there isn't much that sets it apart from any of the other Buddhist temples in area.
