Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Must watch the head of the Buddha statue under the root of tree! The place is peaceful and well managed. The entrance fee is 50 baht.

“One of the most popular in Ayutthaya”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Clean and well organized. You can and will find all the information you need about. Quite famous for the head of Lord Buddha set in a banyan tree.
Entrance fee is 50 THB for a foreigner, no idea for Thai is free or not.
To my humble and personal opinion, too much sellers waiting outside to try to sell you not really interesting things and kind of souvenirs...

“The Buddha tree root head”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

One of the must see Wat's in Ayutthaya. You will need to be patient in order to have your photo taken with the Buddha head.

“Very nice”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We stayed just over the road from this Wat and checked it out after lunch to avoid the blistering heat; there isn't much coverage from the sun if you are fair skinned. Very nice temple, well worth the 50 Baht entrance.
