Ayutthaya is Thailand's Ancient City.
We visited Ayutthaya and we chose to make merit visiting temples in succession and they were all special in their own way - here is a list.
This was a Reclining Buddha situated in the carefully preserved grounds.
An enormous temple the Golden Buddha in the centre and a Chinese Shrine adjacent
4) Wat Koh Kaew
This is a set of Wats and temples which have collections which pay homage to the History of Buddhism in Thailand - very interesting.
5) Wat วัดกล้วย
This was a small Wat with only one temple but outside there was a covered area with more space to make merit.
This was a small Wat with a fair amount of destruction but there was a smaller temple which had a monk inside to receive us.
This was a small Wat with a large number of visitors - well preserved and a place where Buddhism is clearly celebrated.
9) Wat Tha Ga Rong (วดทาการอง)
10) Wat Kasatrathirat Worawihan (วดทาการอง)
UNESCO are keen on preserving Ayutthaya and it is nominated to be on their World Heritage List - and in my opinion it should be.
A visit worth making again.
