    Locations

    Wat Mahathat

    The most famous attraction on the Ayutthaya day tour is the “Buddha head in a Banyan tree” at Wat Mahathat. The Buddha in the Tree is the head of a Buddha statue intertwined with tree roots. In Thai and many other Buddhist cultures this has a special mystical meaning and people are coming from all over the world to see the famous image.

    Wat Phra Sri Sanphet

    Wat Phra Si Sanphet (The Temple of The Buddha Si Sanphet) was the most important temple in the Kingdom of Ayutthaya. It was a part of the Royal Palace, the large monastery was used by the Ayutthaya Kings only, therefore there were no resident monks. The temple is not only a historical site, it was also considered as the spiritual center of the Thai people for a long time.

    Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon

    The temple was founded in the second half of the 14th century during the reign of King U Thong, first ruler of Ayutthaya. Unlike many other ancient sites in Ayutthaya, this temple is still active and monks still reside here. The Thai people visit this temple to pay homage to one of the most respected kings in Thai history, King Naresuan The Great as well as pay respects to Buddha.
