“Large Sculpture of Reclining Buddha”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The sculpture is located in the open, and is exposed to weather conditions. It was sad to note that the sculpture was affected by the floods in 2011.

“Worth a stop in Ayutthaya”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

The large reclining Buddha figure here is worth stopping for if you are in Ayutthaya already. It is a change from the rest of the ruins/temples in the area, and you can see it with only a short 10 or 15 minute stop so it can easily fit into any itinerary. The Buddha itself is quite impressive in it's sheer size, and if you managed to see it highlighted in photos from the 2011 flooding it gives you some real perspective on how bad the floods were.

“See it for a change”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

If you're tired odd all the Chedis and Pangs in the ruins of Ayutthaya then see this large reclining Buddha. Restored to some extend and settled in a field of ruins it is pittoresque but not very impressive.

“Massive, careful with the locals”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

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)

“Well Worth The Trip.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

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.
