Ayutthaya - October

A quick overnight trip to Ayutthaya. For work. Really.

 Lunch stop in Khao Yai at Dairy Home

Wat Chai Wattanaram

A recent Thai historical drama featured this wat. It has become popular for Thais to dress up in traditional attire (available for rent) in which to have their photos taken.

Wat Suan Luang Sopsawan

Unknown Restored Ruins

Baan Tye Wang

This is a wonderful little guest house in a beautiful restored wooden home (with a modern addition for the rooms).

Happy Hour in the Garden

Dining Area

The second floor of the wooden house contains a number of antiques and artifacts

Wat Phra Ram

Wat Phra Ram

Wat Thammikarat

This wat has a currently active monastery and still serves the local community. This monk was kind enough to answer my questions

The Buddha image is probably several hundred years old as is the ubosot in which it is house.

Reclining Buddha - about 800 years old

Wat Ratburana

Corbeled Arch - The Siamese, like the Khmer, never developed the true arch and instead used a Corbeled Arch

 Wall paintings in crypt (กรุ - underground hiding place) where several tiny Buddha relics were found
