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
