This was my favourite temple of all the Temples in Ayatthaya. I had been to Thailand ten years previously and toured a lot of temples with a Thai friend who was a devout buddhist. On this trip I was unable to recapture the same sense of 'something special' until we visited this temple. I wanted to see the black buddha... More

If you plan on visiting a lot of the older ruins, ask about the coupon book from the first ticket booth you visit at whichever ruin you plan to visit first. Each ancient ruin is 50 baht per, but if you ask for the booklet of coupons (that we weren't aware of until we were nearly done temple-touring) it gives... More

Get right to it....fun to see. Why? The vast array of rooster totems everywhere. I saw roosters on different levels contained to certain section of grounds. These are not live. Also in the vicinity is a huge Buddha head nestled in a lotus flower. I have never seen that design anywhere else in Asia. Anywhere you stand w/in reasonable sight... More

Budha was revered in not so long ago Thailand, this place shows the importance that Thai people bestowed upon Budha

Another fine example of the beauty in Ayutthaya. This temple was unique in comparison with the others and was wonderful. I would recommend it, especially if you have a nice camera to take some photos.

Even though there's only the basic brick structure of the temple's main building left, WAt Thammikarat is a quiet and peaceful temple away from the main tourist track. Most impressive the bronze Buddha head at the entrance and the stucco lions around the base of the bell type tower. Don't forget to visit the reclining buddha in the side building

We stumbled onto this Wat by chance and were blown away by how different it is from all the others. An active Wat with an active body of monks, one of whom blessed us and gave us good luck charms. Don't miss it.

We came across Wat Thammikarat whilst exploring the temples in the area. This was my favourite temple as its is part of an active monastery with burning incense. There is no entrance fee but there are donation boxes to help look after stray dogs and the up keep of the temples etc. As well as the ruined lion temple, there... More
