It appears to be an active wat and not under the auspices of the national government as a monument. There were monks around, and some stalls in the front that sold soft drinks in exchange for donations, and other activities I didn’t quite understand. The...More

Roosters. Well, really rooster figurines/statues. Hundreds of 'em. All over the place. Some as high as eight feet tall, maybe taller. Well the Temple is apparently older than Ayutthaya itself. And why the roosters? Well, why not, if you are king. Apparently the king who...More

We were actually looking for a short cut through to The Royal Palace. We paid 20 baht to wander around. There are some ruins, as well as a working temple. It was more impressive than anticipated and well worth a 15 minute wander.
