Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A temple which has long history and great architecture. The bell-shaped chedi is really huge. Do spend some time to climb up the steps. A great place to visit.

Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon, or "Great Monastery of Auspicious Victory". Its distinguishing feature is the high prang (tower) dominating the area. The temple is old and was built in the second half of the 14th century during the reign of King U Thong. Interestingly, it is still active and monks live in it. The current name of the monastery was acquired at the end of the 16th century, when a large chedi was built. In the northeast, you can see a large statue of the Reclining Buddha wrapped in yellow cloth, facing east towards the rising sun. Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon, like many other buildings in the area, was destroyed during the invasion in 1767. Great place and worth visiting.

An important temple with a long history, still important for worshipers today.The main chedi has a platform that you can climb up to get a nice overview of the area, don't miss visiting the recling buddha as well.Simple with good noodle restaurant just outside the temple area.

Really loved this Wat but difficult to get to. We chose a tuk tuk. Beautiful reclining Buddha and rows of Buddha heads encircling a large stupa. Worth the visit.

The harmony of the statues surrounded by chedis and loads of plants is really amazing. It can get crowded, but still makes you feel in peace.
There is also a small pond with turtles you can feed right next to the main hall.

It’s wonderful historical place. The chedi is one of the largest in Ayutthaya and was built by King Natesuan. A rectangular gallery surrounds the chedi and is lined with dozens of stone Buddha images. That’s amazing!
