Of all the stops, this was one of our favorites. Kids dug the dozens of rooster statues. This temple is older than Ayutthaya. Large, awesome reclining Buddha (turn left just after the ticket and go straight through the little door, taking care not to step on the threshold). This is an active Theravada temple, so males and females should be... More

This is one of the few working temples at the UNESCO site, which makes for a nice change of pace. There are lots of interesting sculptures and pieces here to look at, and the staff are friendly as well. Worth a quick bike ride over.

Ayuttaya is a hidden treasure and a place that should not be missed when visiting Thailand! originally the capital of Thailand, Ayuttaya is rich with history. I rented a bike for 30 baht/ day and cycled my way around the town. There was a entrance fee of 20 baht but the rest of the temples did not have a fee.... More

If you need some luck in whatever, just spend a few baht and you'll be fine in love, work etc. This Wat is more quiet as some others. It has a calm atmosphere.

Upon entering Wat Thammikarat or Wat Thummikarat it appears to be largely in ruins, but is actually an active temple with monks living there. The most interesting feature is a central temple surrounded by singha or lion sculptures. And roosters - lots of roosters!

In this temple area, you can find some unique features, such as temple ruins surrounded by cocks statues and broken stupas. You can also find some oil paintings collections of Thai's Old Kings in the newer temple building. You can reach the temple by either hiring tuktuk or bicycle. Tuktuk will be the best choice if you do not have... More

A unique chedi that is surrounded by Singha instead of the usual Elephants. That alone makes it impressive, but there is also an enormous vihara, that still contains a Buddha image.

This was my favourite temple of all the Temples in Ayatthaya. I had been to Thailand ten years previously and toured a lot of temples with a Thai friend who was a devout buddhist. On this trip I was unable to recapture the same sense of 'something special' until we visited this temple. I wanted to see the black buddha... More
