Wat Mahathat was one of Ayutthaya’s most important temples. It enshrined Buddha relics and was the seat of the Supreme Patriarch of Buddhism and thus the center of Buddhism in the Ayutthaya Kingdom.

Stop At: Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Lokayasutharam)

Wat Lokayasutharam was a large temple located west of the royal palace. Most of the temple was leveled to the ground in the aftermath of the Burmese invasion. The most significant surviving relic of the old temple is a large reclining Buddha image. The image is around 40 meters long and 8 meters high. Although the image was once housed in its own chapel, that too was destroyed so now the Buddha sits in the open air.

One of the most visited temples in Ayutthaya, Wat Chaiwattanaram is located on the bank of the Chao Phraya river. The temple was ordered to built in 1630 by King Prasat Thong to honor his mother, featuring the architectural style influenced by Angkor temple in Cambodia. Its most unique feature is a large, central prang (Khmer-style pagoda) surrounded by smaller prangs, symbolizing Mount Sumeru, the gods' mountain according to Hindu belief.
