This is one of the main ruins in ayutthaya. Entrance fee is 50 thb. You can see beheaded statues inside the temple. If you stay on the east side of ayutthaya, this is the place where you can start your day trip.

This is one of the many historical ruin of Ayutthaya, and they start to look a lot alike after a while. So if you are biking to see each park, you can skip this one. The 50 bath entry fee was still there for me,...More

Free entrance . Nice views. Didn't go down the scary stairs inside the pagoda . Too risky with young children
