Ayutthaya’s major tourist attraction is its historical park. The historical park covers an area of 2.89 million square metres and includes a variety of attractions, first and foremost of which are its 13 old temples. Ayutthaya was Thailand’s biggest and most important city from 1351 until 1767 when it was ransacked by invaders from Burma forcing the King to flee to Bangkok. Ayutthaya was during this period one of the largest cities in the world, perhaps the largest, hosting visitors from all over the world.
Of the many temples in Ayutthaya Historical Park the best 3 are:
- Wat Maha Tat: This is a temple where the head of a Buddha statue is engulfed in the roots of a Bodhi tree, which is probably the most photographed feature of Ayutthaya Hisotrical Park.
- Wat Phra Ram: Temple with a large central prang (Khmer style temple) which is one of the only remaining intact examples of a style of temple that existed all over Thailand 400 to 500 years ago.
- Wat Phra Si Samphet: The largest and most visited temple in the historical park. The temple features three tall prang in a row. These three prang and other elements of the temple are in alignment with the stars and planets in way which some people believe is similar to other temple complexes such as Angkor Wat and Mayan temples in South America.
