Wat Phra Si Sanphet

Serving as the Royal Monastery from 1350 to 1448, this temple occupies expansive grounds inside the walls of the now-collapsed Royal Palace. The three iconic chedis – housing the royal relics of three Ayutthaya Kings – are among the few structures left standing in the temple grounds, which is itself a must-see ruin site. On the empty space that now exists between the three chedis, there once stood two mandapas for storing Buddhist scriptures and religious relics. East of the chedis are the remains of the main chapel’s concrete columns. Continue walking towards the north and you will reach the entrance to the Royal Palace. 


Opening Hours: 07:00 – 18:00 Location: Ayutthaya Historical Park, on Naresuan Road
