Wat Phra Si Sanphet, is the largest temple in Ayutthaya, known for its distinctive row of restored chedis (Thai-style stupas) found on many images of the city.

Housed within the grounds of the former royal palace, the temple was used only for royal religious ceremonies. It once housed a 16 m high Buddha covered with 340 kg of gold, but the Burmese set fire to the statue to melt the gold and destroyed the temple in the process.

The royal palace can also be accessed from the same entrance at Wat Phra Si Sanphet, but it only has a few free standing buildings remaining.

Price: 50 baht
