The Holiest Temple on the site of the Royal Palace.

Still in amazing condition for their age, these Stupha's for me are the best sight in Ayatthaya. We managed to come early enough to miss the crowds which made the viewing even... read more

Still in amazing condition for their age, these Stupha's for me are the best sight in Ayatthaya. We managed to come early enough to miss the crowds which made the viewing even better, as we were leaving two large buses were arriving. We breathed a sigh of relief that we had the place virtually to ourselves. The three Kings ashes... More

When in Thailand, one must pay a visit to the historical town of Ayutthaya, once the capital of the kingdom of SIam. One of the must visit is this wat, which was the holiest temple of the old Royal Palace of Ayutthaya. It was the temple of the royal family, no monks lived here. Was used exclusively for royal ceremonies.... More

This temple complex is a must-visit if one is in Ayutthaya. Would recommend a day tour with a guide for visiting all the temples in Ayutthaya

Went here after visiting the Wat's in Bangkok. Completely different but just as engaging. The sheer size of the site is amazing and although there are only remnants of the original buildings it is still worth a visit. We had a guide who knew which bits to see and the history behind the site and architecture. I would certainly recommend... More

These Ruins or temples are just gorgeous to see. Do go when the weather is not too hot. I went there in May and the weather was unbearable. Could not enjoy the sights fully.

This is the most important temple within Royal Palace compound in Ayutthaya and corresponds to the Emerald Buddha Temple in Bangkok's Grand Palace. It was a 16m tall Buddha image covered with gold weighing about 170kgs built in the 15th century and later, in the 17th century Burmese set fire to the image to melt off the gold thereby destroying...

The temple is very beautiful. You can walk around in a peaceful environment. We took a bicycle for the day and really enjoyed walking and bicycling around. This temple was one of the most beautiful - and for sure the most impressive !

Went here with a private guide but you really don't need one. Very hot during the midday better to come in the morning or in the evening. Great historical site and great photo opportunities. Don't miss this one!

Though it's a good car ride from Bangkok, this site is a must see. If you are a lover history, old civilizations or seeing ruins, all of Ayutthaya is a great destination. The ruins are amazing, thankfully the tourist crowd has not ruined this place as we know many known tourist locations can get this way. Seeing the ruins blows... More
