The Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is laid out over a large swath of land of the Ancient Royal grounds. There are three main temples surrounded by lots of other historical ruins on the grounds. Make sure to wear sunblock and/or a hat as you can quickly overheat in the hot weather. Most of the explanation panels are in English and... More

For those heading to this Wat by self-drive, park your car at the elephants' base and walk straight ahead (5 min). Now the entrance fee is exempt along w/other Wats within... More

One of the highest and also most important stupas in Ayutthaya. If you climb the steep steps you'll be able to see most of the flat area that surrounds the place. A must see if you visit Ayutthaya. Highly recommended.

This is unique for the three similar chedi's housing the remains of three brothers and their families. This is another extensive complex that must have been spectacular in its day.

Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is my favorite wat in Ayutthaya. The stupa's have something magical to me. I have visited this wat at least 10 times and I will visit it again.
