It is from one of the 14 ruins of Ayutthaya Historic Park. When you visit this park you will see all the Wat's of them together with this one... It is probably best Wat and should definitely not miss a trip to here.

Despite this isn't a very old temple compared to the Khmer temples in the north-east, it's in very bad condition, mostly just ruins. I've seen a lot of temples of which was taken care - unlike this one. And it will get worse very fast...More

Love it. Such a historical place. Ruin yet preserve beautifully. This is an iconic temple among the Ayutthaya ruins and it is the image on the Thailand currency coins. A must to visit.

Do not miss this one. It is situated inside the city. Tuktuk driver was pretty cheap (a few dollars), and they will bring you to the many sites and wait for you. I suggest a whole day in Ayutthaya

Under the clear sky, on the bright day, it is recommended to be there as early as you can. So you can avoid the strong sun while enjoying the great scene of the ancient monastery. Aware that this is the temple, wear appropriate dress to...More
