Ayutthaya the ancient capital Tour
See the most charming Buddha Image in Ayutthaya City which was a flourishing and prosperous capital. It remained an important city in Thailand for 417 years and during this period an abundance of palaces and temples were constructed as a token of its economic success. The ruins of temples and palaces of Ayutthaya, whether naturally worn by time or destroyed by the result of war, are a reflection of a golden and glorious past.
Recenlty declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Historic Ayutthaya temples are scattered throughout this once magnificient city and along the surrounding rivers.
The highlights of the site for your visit including Bang Pa-In Palace, Wat Maha That, Wat Lokayasutharam and Wat Na Phra Mane.

From Artifacts and the style of the Pagoda, we believe that Wat Maha That was built before the Ayutthaya Period or around the 14th Century. One of the images which was excavated by the Fine Art Department was a Buddha Image in the Sitting Attitude (sitting with drop down legs). This image belonged to the Lopburi Period. The Pagodas are from the Bayon Style or Bayon Period (compared to Khmer culture) which are built with laterite.
Wat Naphra Mane
From evidence, we believe Wat Na Phra Mane was built in 1504. When Ayutthaya was collapsed for the second time, all the Temples, Palaces and most of the City were destroyed, but Wat Na Phra Mane survived. Wat Na Phra Mane contains the most complete Works of Art from the Ayutthaya Period, especially the Image in the main shrine.
The Chapel Hall of Wat Na Phra Mane is one of the largest in Ayutthaya, which contains a total of 9 rooms (most Wats were only 3 or 5 rooms). The Temple is facing the Lopburi River and the foundation of Hall is the shape of Chinese junk. Walking around the Hall you will spot the walls of the hall which have no windows. It just has cut out spaces to allow natural light to shine through and for the air to circulate. These are called "Balusters".
The Lental of Wat Na Phra Mane is a wood-carving in the image of the Deity Vishnu mounted on Garuda and surrounded with 22 Cherubs.
The origins of this Wat are unknown. The temple holds one of the outdoor Reclining Buddha images which was built during The Early Period of the Ayutthaya region.
