Wat Phra Ram was built in 14th century by King Ramesuan at the cremation site for his father, King Uthong. The temple compound houses a large prang and many chedis. In front of the temple, there is a large ond named 'Nong Sono'. Earth was dug out at this site, for the construction of surrounding temples.

Defiantly worth a walk around and take a... More

Apparently Wat Phra Ram was built by King Ramesuan as the cremation site for his father. The temple compound houses a large prang and many chedis. It's quite peaceful here and easy to walk around. Very agreeable for photography.

I enjoyed stopping here for a look round late afternoon while cycling around the 'island'. It is not the most impressive but still has plenty to see and photograph with its ruined stupas and towers. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place as opposed to some of the bigger temples that the tourist buses frequent

An attractive, climbable (if one must) temple, which retains some of its former glory. Most of it is in ruins however, but is still very much worth a visit, in a quitter side of the historical park. Very popular with the locals.

Really amazing large tower in Ayuttaya. Tower can be seen from quite a ways hard to miss and definitely worth a few photos.

Beautiful large tower (prang) which is undergoing some restoration. Depending on the work, you may be permitted to climb inside to the inner chamber that once held treasures.

If you plan on visiting a lot of the older ruins, ask about the coupon book from the first ticket booth you visit at whichever ruin you plan to visit first. Each ancient ruin is 50 baht per, but if you ask for the booklet of coupons (that we weren't aware of until we were nearly done temple-touring) it gives... More
