There is nothing much about this place except for the huge reclining statue of the Buddha. The temple and even the statue are in a very bad shape and there is practically no maintenance. There are hardly any visitors and only those who are aware...More

This Buddha is beautiful. He looks like he’s having a wonderful dream. Easy to get to off the side of the road.

Our guide told us this buddha is a reproduction because the original was destroyed when Ayutthaya was razed. There is no temple left either. Not worth it.

This is a very large nicely carved reclining Buddha.It was not very crowded at all when we went. We found it worth a visit and for most people it would not be a long stop. There are, however, some other images, ruins and parkland at...More

Impressive in its own right, but nothing in comparison to the reclining Buddha in Bangkok or indeed the ruins in the rest of the Ayutthaya area. If you are in the area or on a tour, it’s a pleasant 15 minute stop - including a...More

The place is not crowded, which in and of itself makes it worth the stop. It's peaceful and a nice place to picnic. Some good shopping, but the people selling flowers near the Buddha can be quite aggressive in their sales techniques.

We learned that there is a Buddha for each day of the week, two for Wednesdays! The reclining Buddha is a Tuesday favourite. Very impressive. We spent some extra time lighting some incense, putting water lilies out for good luck, or placing a piece of...More

We went to Ayuthaya by train from Bangkok. Then rent a motorbike to do our day-tour. We visited quite a few famous places but had also been recommended to visit Wat Lokayasutharam where the big reclining buddha is located. So it was a quick visit...More

Absolutely loved it though comparing to Reclining Buddha in Bangkok it's very modest. But it was quiet and serene, you can browse almost on your own. Recommending it highly.
