Though it's ruins, the main towers are quite well preserved, giving you a sense of how majestic this place must have been once upon a time. We rented bikes, which was a great way of visiting the city despite the traffic!

Beautiful ruins which my friend, who was born and raised in Ayutthaya says are hunted. This temple is a must when in town, you will have many opportunities for photos. You can also climb to the top.

As part of the UNESCO heritage Ayutthaya Historical Park this temple is from my point of view the most impressive beside Wat Chatanaram and Wat Mahatat. To take good photos we decided to go there a 2nd time in the early morning when not many tourists are there and the shadows still long to provide good contrasts.

Like all the ruins this area is easy to get to, and easy to walk around, it's very very hot and busy so I suggest early morning or late in the day
