Ayutthaya Thailand Part II

Continuing from Part I.. (previous post here)

we went to these 3 temples

3) Wat Phra Mahathat

4) Wat Lokayasutharam

5) Wat Chaiwatthanaram

Wat Phra Mahathat is where the famous buddha head on a tree is.. its also the main factor that i wanna visit Ayutthaya.

Its amazing how a Buddha head will remain rooted upright on a tree …It signifies alot more for me.

Do note that most temples (wat) require a entrance fee, either 20B or 50B.

Over here are all ruins.. its really sad to see things in broken state.. the remains of a city destroyed..

Next stop, 4th temple, Wat Lokayasutharam, one of the biggest reclining Buddha. There’s only one buddha here, but i really would love to come and admire the large Buddha and the surrounding peace. Not much tourist in this spot.

The weather is really hot, in November, but there is a provision shop nearby selling coconut juice & mineral water.

Last stop! This temple is a little further away, Wat Chaiwatthanaram, also ruins, but on a rather large scale. looks like a palace it once was.
