I consider this the best site of all those at Ayutthaya. Built along the river side, most of the Buddha statues were decapitated during the ancient wars.

Similar to the Ayutthaya ruins and historical park, this temple consists of more ruins, but they are of different types, so definitely worth a visit. The temple is located next to the river, around a 15 minute drive from the Ayutthaya ruins.

As you can see from the attached photos, Wat Chaiwatthanaram is stunning and in keeping with the best traditions of Ayutthaya. Must see.
