The Reclining Buddha is impressive. Much larger than I was expecting. Definitely worth seeing. This is one of the only free entry places in Ayutthaya, there's not really anything here more than the reclining Buddha. The locals outside were very keen on people buying incense and flowers to lay down, and they would even show you where to put them (and then ask you to buy a Buddha ammulet)

A short hop from the taxi boat that goes up & down the river is the Temple Of The Reclining Buddha. I love visiting the Temples in Thailand thee is such a feeling of calm & serenity. I do have a problem with foreign tourists who don't take any notice of the signs & advice from the guides & then disrespect the Buddha image. This is a beautiful place that any tourist to Bangkok should visit but please be respectful of the Buddha. The famous Wats in Bangkok are only spoiled by the ignorence of western tourists.

perhaps the time when i've been wasn't any buddha festive hence the buddha did not cover by the orange cloth. but this is quite a further place compare to those in the center of city,so not much crowd and you can take photo as much as possible.

The highlight of this ruined monastery located west of the Royal Palace is its enormous 40-metre-long reclining Buddha, Ayutthaya's largest. But personally I wouldn't rank it on the top ten list of things to do in Ayutthaya.

For those with wheels, even larger and better preserved is the reclining Buddha at Wat Khun Intha Pramul (วัดขุนอินทประมูล) in Ang Thong (อ่างทอง) Province, about 45 minutes drive north of Ayutthaya, which I highly recommend.
