Description of each place for visit
which used to be the supreme royal temple during Ayutthaya’s days of prosperity. Stop at Viharn Phra Mongkolborphit housing a large bronze cast Buddha image, which was originally enshrined in the open area outside the Grand Palace and later covered by a building in the reign of King Songtham.
where the head of Buddha ‘s image is surrounded by roots of a tree.Wat Ratchburana is a temple built where the two sibling prince of Ayutthaya flight on the back of elephant at the approach to the Pa-Than bridge and ended with the death of them both. King Sampraya built the temple to house the ashes of his elder brothers. In 1950, the thieve escavated this cypte and found priceless number of teasure underneathe. Now parth of the teasure is kept in the Sampraya museum.
The Chao Sam Phraya National Museumis
a rather old fashioned museum, full of dusty display cases stuffed with artifacts. I wouldn t necessarily recommend a visit were it not for the two vaults on the second floor of the main exhibition building. One vault (and I do mean vault, complete with heavy safe doors) displays the gold-and-jeweled goods found in the burial pit at Wat Ratchaburana, while the vault at the other end of the floor has a similar display of items from the shaft of Wat Mahathat.
Study Center Museum. At this museum see, read and learn what Ayutthaya looks like, how people live and what they do for a living.
Wat Na Phrameru Rachikaram
was built in early period of Ayutthaya and has been renovated from time to time. In 1760 A.D. the king of Burma had invaded Thailand and used this temple to place canons and fired them into the Royal Palace area. This is the only temple of Ayutthaya which survived from Burmese attract.
Wat Chai Wattanaram
(built in 1630 by King Prasat Thong, a replica of Angkor Wat with a huge prang surrounded by smaller ones, symbolizing Mount Meru, the residence of the heavenly gods), which is located next to the Chao Praya River. This is the best time to walk and talk about the last period of Ayutthaya and enjoy a nice breeze and take a lot of photos before return ing to Bangkok.Return to Bangkok
