Travel guide to Ayutthaya
Ayutthaya's famous Buddha
Ayutthaya's famous Buddha
It may be the search for the Buddha head wound in tree roots that draws you to Ayutthaya, but there is much more in this historic city. The summer palace, Ba Pang In, rebuilt in the late 19th century, is a mind bending mix of architecture, as you cross a bridge modeled after Paris' Point Neuf to view a Siamese temple on a lake or walk through a Chinese Pagoda. Ayutthaya Historical Park houses the many acres of 15th and 16th century ruins, the remains after sacking by the Burmese. In one section rows of Buddhas sit dressed in their day glow finery while blocks away headless Buddha sit watch, defiled and desecrated. Ride a bike around the ruins so that you can take your time to appreciate them and then come back at night to view them lit. Viharn Phra Mongkol Bopitah, a merit temple, houses the largest seated Buddha in Thailand, a whopping 3 stories tall with a fascinating history. The bustling Night Market makes the perfect ending as you dine on tasty street food from its many stalls. [edit text]  [editors]
