It’s one of a must see places, when you visit Ayutthaya. It’s easy to reach, if you drive, beautiful heritage of Thailand.

The entire Ayutthaya complex is worth a visit. Well maintained, clean and tourist friendly. Sadly not much effort has been taken in highlighting information for the curious person. So you just go there, gape at everything and come back.
