The three Chedis [spires] of Wat Phra Si (not Sri) Sanphet have been restored/preserved and personify what the name means: “Temple of the Holy, Splendid Omniscient”. It is the holiest Royal Palace temple. It is holiest temple at Royal Palace in ancient capital Ayutthaya, and was founded by King Ramathibodi (Rama) the First, in 1351. The Royal Palace is shrouded... More

One of the many Temples to see & should be added to your itinerary whilst in Ayutthaya as with most Temples there is a small fee some you can by a "bulk lot" for more than one .

This grand Temple of the Holy Splendid Omnicient was started around 1351 and was situated in front the old Royal Palace that was located in the ancient capital of Ayutthaya. It was the holiest temple and used exclusively by the royal family before the ground was converted into a holy site following the construction of a new palace in 1448.... More

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

I my opinion, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is the best of the three big ruins to see in Ayutthaya. They are very well preserved, however quite easy to walk around and take in the ancient beauty of these ruins. They are much quieter than the main temple complex with a lot less tourist groups.

Still in amazing condition for their age, these Stupha's for me are the best sight in Ayatthaya. We managed to come early enough to miss the crowds which made the viewing even better, as we were leaving two large buses were arriving. We breathed a sigh of relief that we had the place virtually to ourselves. The three Kings ashes... More

When in Thailand, one must pay a visit to the historical town of Ayutthaya, once the capital of the kingdom of SIam. One of the must visit is this wat, which was the holiest temple of the old Royal Palace of Ayutthaya. It was the temple of the royal family, no monks lived here. Was used exclusively for royal ceremonies.... More
