Ayutthaya Temples

Temple of Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya Temple with its history, pictures and description. The majority of the remains are temples and palaces, as these were the only buildings built of stone at that time. The Wat Maha That or the Monastery of the Great Relic is located on the city island in the central part of Ayutthaya in the subdistrict of Tha Wasukri. It is the first time that I have visited many temples in one day, even though I am Thai. Ayutthaya was once the ancient capital of Siam.

Most of the important temples around the Ayutthaya Historical Park were there. Ayutthaya's past and civilization can be split into three major periods:

Early Ayutthaya periods, the mid- and late Ayutthaya periods. In the early days, the Prang (modelled on the Khmer architecture) was the most striking building within the complex of temples. In the midperiod, the Stupa, often in Sri Lankan (rounded) styles, became the most recognizable of these.

The Ubosoth or Coronation Hall grew bigger during the later Ayutthaya era, and while the pranks and cheedis are still there, they are less pronounced. Some of the older temples have been renovated. This is why you can see some of the newer architectural features in the older temples.
