Extensive ruins after being destroyed by the Burmese. In all their majesty they must have been a beautiful site, their architecture was heavily influenced by the Sri Lankans. Much more interesting if you have a guide as there are very few information boards. Take water...More

Three slender stucco-covered chedis aligned make a beautiful vista; dating back to the 1570s they're -unlike most ruins in Ayutthaya- in perfect shape. An added bonus: very few tourists when I visited in late afternoon.

Otherwise known as Temple of the Holy, Splendid Omniscient, it was completely destroyed by the Burmese.

The place was mostly under construction but the towers were free. Here you can see the amazing architecture of old thailand.

I found it hard to get the right angle to really show the 3 pilars together, but the bits of budda statues all around and the buildings are very interesting. I walked around everything at least 3 or 4 times trying to find the right...More
