“Open-air reclining Buddha image”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Excellent example of Ayutthaya art on display in a wide-open area in the quieter part of Ayutthaya Historical Park. Go here if you want freestyle photo ops where you don't have to jostle with the crowds. Majestic and bewildering, the image is in a complete form unlike the many ruins in the area. This is well worth visiting.

Reviewed February 20, 2014

Very nice landscape of the outdoor reclining lord Buddha in the center of Ancient city of Ayutthaya. The best time for taking photo at this location will be in the afternoon.

“Not so fun but can be a worth a visit”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

This is just a lying buddha with some ruins in the background. If you're into buddha and temples it can be fun but we just took a look and left after five minutes. Ayutthaya is full of cool ruins so make sure you don't miss them because of this reclining Buddha. Not so many people though!

Also, make sure your tuk tuk wait outside otherwise it's hard to find one since everyone are 'renting' their own, which you also should do. If they offer you a roundtrip to some attractions you should say yes, it's worth it and less expensive than if you change tuk tuk between the attractions.
Here are some pics, and yeah, seeing it in pictures actually is enough http://beammedown.blogg.se/2014/february/temple-of-the-reclining-buddha-wat-lokayasutharam.html
