It is an impressive place, not only because of the reclining Buddha but also the other ruins. Wear a hot or carry an umbrella on a sunny day. It gets very hot.

During our bike tour of the city, we passed by the Reclining Buddha (Wat Lokkaya Sutharam-Phra Buddha Sai Yat). As we parked and locked our bikes across the street some of the local vendors were already trying to stop us to sell some of their goods. We admired the Buddha from the road as well as close up as she... More

This ruin is really in ruin except for the one highlight the reclining buddha. The rest of the site has nothing interesting.

It's not in a temple is right there on the street but many people is trying to get pictures at the same time so you have to wait and if it's a sunny day you may want to leave soon

This was one of the temples I saw during my tour of Ayutthaya, and I'm glad we stopped here.

Though weathered, the statue was very well built and retains enough detail to be visually stunning. The rest of the ruins... More

Stopped here during the day tour to Ayutthaya. This place is free to walk around and take pictures. Definitely worth seeing.

Often overlooked, this temple ruins complex is worth a visit. The reclining Buddha itself is the main draw, where some buses park and there are some hucksters selling flowers and amulets, but behind it is a large peaceful area of other scenic ruins. It's less touristy and not far from Wat Mongkolbophit

This place was no charge for traveler sightseeing and located far from the center of Ayudhaya.Just use gps search the word "Wat Lokayasutharam or วัดโลกยสุธาราม" you will easy to find this place you can seeing around place that was so big area and this buddha was so still old style and beautiful that you should come.

The Reclining Buddha is big, but honestly not very impressive. Some small ruins around. It's a place just to stop for few minutes, take some photos and have a coffee.
