I must say this is one of the best-kept temple(pagodas) here in Ayutthaya. About 90 steps to climb to reach the top, the view from the top is spectacular. There are some more ruins nearby to give a contrast to the architecture. Since its renovated,...More

It's a bit out of the way compared to other Ayutthaya sites, which is also good as there are usually minimal tourist around. It was part of our Ayutthaya tour stop, and when we were there, there were no other groups around. It is currently...More

All wats may have active monks at any time. Pants or very long shorts that cover the knees, and shirts and tops that cover the shoulders and midriff are appropriately respectful of the culture and local practices.
