Relics at its best. Must have been a very grand temple palace in those ages. Must visit place while in Ayuthaya. Explore hiring a tuktuk from the Ayuthaya station.

A really beautiful temple complete with surrounding stone Buddhas, ruins, reconstruction work, and a very imposing tower. It costs 50 baht to go in (or buy the national park pass for 220 baht and enter 7 temples) While you cannot go up the tower, there is a lot to explore. Across the way you can rent some period Thai clothes for picture taking. Bring a nice camera for that...or just for the historical magnificence. Enjoy. Light and aloha 🙏🏽🤙🏽
I was surprised when standing front of this place. Good place to visit, especially in afternoon cause you can view river front of temple. Can enjoy the boat tour as well. In afternoon,time of sunset, you feel so peaceful when listen many birds's sounds back their nests. Peaceful in countryside! The attractive point in ancient capital!
Many visitors were wearing Thai traditional clothes that can be rented at the shops near the entrance (opposite the road). With or without the costumes, it is a great place for awesome pictures. The temple ruins are next to the river and I noticed some visitors arrived by boat. There are restrooms near the entrance.
Beautiful! Highly recommended! Well maintained & a perfect place to take pics. You can rent traditional Thai costumes and take pics. I went in the evening & the sunset was amazing. Not to be missed!
We visited this place on a Saturday afternoon. It was an amazing place to see. They were lots of people in Thai traditional costumes taking photos. But we came to the grounds from a different route but when we left the place we then saw lots of shops on the main road renting these costumes for the photos. It's all to do with the backdrop due to the ancient historical buildings which would have good photos to take. I highly recommend this place.
