Roosters. Well, really rooster figurines/statues. Hundreds of 'em. All over the place. Some as high as eight feet tall, maybe taller. Well the Temple is apparently older than Ayutthaya itself. And why the roosters? Well, why not, if you are king. Apparently the king who...More

This temple is not specular in any way, I would say more fascinating. The dozens and dozens of rooster statues are interesting. It will cost 20 baht to visit and I think the temple could use every cent to try and help maintain it for...More

Of all the stops, this was one of our favorites. Kids dug the dozens of rooster statues. This temple is older than Ayutthaya. Large, awesome reclining Buddha (turn left just after the ticket and go straight through the little door, taking care not to step...More

This is one of the few working temples at the UNESCO site, which makes for a nice change of pace. There are lots of interesting sculptures and pieces here to look at, and the staff are friendly as well. Worth a quick bike ride over.

We were actually looking for a short cut through to The Royal Palace. We paid 20 baht to wander around. There are some ruins, as well as a working temple. It was more impressive than anticipated and well worth a 15 minute wander.

If you need some luck in whatever, just spend a few baht and you'll be fine in love, work etc. This Wat is more quiet as some others. It has a calm atmosphere.

Upon entering Wat Thammikarat or Wat Thummikarat it appears to be largely in ruins, but is actually an active temple with monks living there. The most interesting feature is a central temple surrounded by singha or lion sculptures. And roosters - lots of roosters!
