What people are saying:

This temple is considered to be a relatively well-preserved temple, and there are complete Buddha statues. I feel that the temples in Ayutthaya are seriously damaged. You must avoid noon when you visit the temple. The sun is too poisonous. It is recommended to live nearby and go shopping early in the morning. There are not many people. There are only 50 tickets for this temple, and there are also coupons for 220. If you charter a car, you can buy a coupon and you can transfer it in one day. If you ride a bicycle by yourself, you should choose a representative ticket and buy it separately. It’s too far between. Rent 50 bicycles a day and hire a tuk-tuk for 300 for an hour. It’s still expensive if you can pay back 200. It’s a good deal for more people. To take a photo with a Buddha statue, you must squat down or sit, not taller than the Buddha statue. An administrator sat there and stared. There are not many tourists in the whole big city, so it is quite comfortable to stroll around by yourself. Where you rent bicycles, you will also get a free map with 98 temples marked. Of course, most of them are left with only the base. The combined ticket contains six attractions, two of which are outside the city, and are valid for one month.

Additional Information

Introduction

Wat Phra Mahathat is located in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Thailand. Walking into the temple feels like entering a vast forest, which cools down all the heat. Here you can find the famous Buddha Head which is entwined by tentacle-like banyan roots. Wrapped around by the roots, the Buddha Head appears to have grown from the tree itself, and become part of the tree.
