Trip Planner: Asia / Thailand / Ayutthaya Province / Ayutthaya / Wat Phra Sri Sanphet
Built in the 15th century, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet once served as the largest and holiest temple in Ayutthaya, Thailand’s ancient capital. You will recognize the attraction by its three cone-shaped chedis, said to hold the ashes of three past kings as well as relics. Burmese attacks severely damaged the site in the 18th century, and the three chedis remain the only buildings restored so far. Most people just come for a glimpse of these iconic structures, but take some time to explore the ruins of this important Thailand attraction. Put Wat Phra Sri Sanphet on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ayutthaya road trip planning website.

Wat Phra Sri Sanphet reviews
Apart from the photos of the three stupas there is not much else to see here. Close to Matahat so easily combined with others

The city on which Bangkok was modeled. You can go inside the temple and see the beautiful big Buddha. Then just a quick walk you can see the amazing ruins. Amazing!

This place is a major landmark in Ayutthaya. First of all, there's a temple with a big golden Buddha statue in it at the entrance. It looks like the newer structure. Second, the reason most people visit is because of the ruins of the temple on the ancient palace grounds. It's a very interesting place to visit and would recommend. However, they have a double pricing system, no matter if a foreigner has been living in Thailand for over 8 years.
Historical symbol is hidden in this beautiful place. This can reflect the past civilization. This great architecture is very unique. You see it, you could not stop thinking of its stories through the remaining old Thai traditional stupa and so on. Please come here to perceive its such a meaningful place.
Surprisingly not as popular as Wat Mahathat with tourists...I think this is far more spectacular. Certainly more pretty with breathtaking views throughout. Very hot and I recommend an umbrella for shade. Duel pricing exists throughout Thailand and entry is 50 bath for foreigners and 10 for Thai. I have no issue with this and mention only for reference. Good luck
Great temple to visit. Well presented and preserved. Very interesting and beautiful. Easy to stroll around without guide. Girls need to cover up and it gets very hot so a umbrella can be useful.
One of the most iconic sites in Ayutthaya! The 3 stupas are in a average condition. After visiting the other sides it kind of becomes the same thing different site. I would suggest to visit 2 out of the 6 mayor attractions. Fee is 50 bath for foreigners, 10 for students.
