A very nice place to visit. More than an hour ride from Bangkok, Ayutthaya. Main attraction is the Buddha's head in tree roots. Most of the Buddha there are headless.

Learnt that this is one of the oldest Buddhism temples just a few minutes walking distance from the Grande Palace. Very well-maintained with friendly monks who explain about the history and the cultural heritage of this temple. Definitely recommended to visit.
