Good temple to explore in the heart of the region. Impressive open grounds. Its less popular than the others as its condition is not as good, but worth a visit regardless.

Wat Phra Ram is one of the 5 main temples in the Ayuthaya historical city. This temple was built in 1369 by a king of Ayuthaya over the cremation ground of his father. This temple has a central Pagoda and many small pagodas surrounding it. It was a great experience clicking pics amidst archeological ruins of the great Ayuthaya kingdom. I had purchased combined ticket for 220 baht from Wat Mahathat and this temple is covered under that.

We walked to this site after visiting Wat Sri Samphet and Wat Phra Mongkhon Bophit, about 300meters away. It is located next to a lake. There is a ticket for the entry to this place and you can use your combi ticket of 220 Bahts here.

The place was not crowded, as there were no visible, organised tour buses here. It is a pity, as this is a well-kept Wat with interesting ruins. There are sign boards illustration on its history and significance. As in most of the Wats, the main exhibit was a prang situated on a stepped terrace adorned with chedis. There are also Buddha images.

The place is bound to be hot, therefore carry a hat, sun lotion and lots of water.
We spend about 45 minits here. Transport is available to go back. If visiting Ayutthaya, then a visit to this place is a must.

Wat Phra Ram is relatively a small Buddhist temple in Ayutthaya city center. The temple situated next to a panoramic view of a lake and close to the Grand Palace & Wat Phra Sri Sanphet. The temple was built in 1369 on the site of the first Ayutthaya and was extended at the Ayutthaya period. The temple has been restored a few times.
The temple houses a large central prang with smaller towers surrounding it. There are some stairs on the holy tower's surface which are used for going up the holy tower.
The shells & foundations of many buildings can be seen today but only a little of the original stucco work remains, but there's enough to get an idea of how rich the detail must have been. Earth was dug out at this site, for the construction of temples (Wat Mahathat, Wat Ratchaburana, the former Royal Palace).
Next to the temple is a large park with a sizable lake, called Beung Phra Ram.

The temple is in ruins and not much crowded. There is an entrance fee for the temple. Whatever left out is still huge and impressive.

Our hotel manager recommended Wat Phra Ram as a good place to see sunrise. Excellent suggestion, due to a lake nearby, creating nice reflections. Unfortunately, we had a cloudy sunrise but could see why this is a good place to try. We returned later in the morning to explore the grounds and wow! Completely magnificent ruins, and no crowds! Not sure why people are skipping this wat, but don't let that be you! Work time into your schedule to feel the peace and harmony at Wat Phra Ram!

This Wat is not on the big tour bus itinerary, so there are far fewer visitors. Enjoy the solitude and tourist free photos.

Perfect place for the afternoon walk in the historic city. My favorite place to sit and have a small meditation. Beautiful place to give myself a small break from everything. By doing nothing.Just sit & breathe in ..

Rather average temple compared to neighboring ones, large stupa right in the middle is the main draw here, but cant be accessed by visitors, only walking around is allowed.
