Ayutthaya was a delight to cycle around and this area was a little further out, but is worth including if you have the time. It is set close to some other interesting, less well known temples and is much smaller than some other famous reclining...More

This was a cool statue of the reclining Buddha but there wasn’t much here. Across the street there were a few local vendors worth the visit.

This large Buddha is now in the open as it's building has collapsed. It's worth a visit to see. Like a lot of the temple sites in Ayutthaya you appreciate it more with a guide or guide book.
