The statue is very big and impressive. It is easy to found because it is in the main park of Ayutthaya. The statue is usually covered by yellow clothes.

We went to see it because it was the only monument that was not destroyed during the Birmanian invasion but we had great luck since a Buddhist festival was going on and we got to see people feeding the monks

We came here as part of our tour in Ayutthaya. The reclining Buddha lays on a large terrain with many other attractions (mostly ruins). We had about an hour to walk around. It was a really nice place to visit but certainly not one of...More
