Top 7 most famous & beautiful temples
Are you looking for an easy day trip to squeeze into your Bangkok itinerary? Then be sure to check out Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is but an hour's drive from the capital. It is often described as a photographer's dream destination, and anyone who visits will soon find out why.
Ayutthaya was once a flourishing center of global politic, economy, and religion. It was founded in 1350 and remained a thriving city until it was almost entirely burnt down by the Burmese when they invaded in 1767. Regardless of all the destruction, many of the mere ruins are sufficient to leave all visitors in awe.
Siamese kings sponsored the building of marvelous Buddhist temples, gold-laden palaces, and a highly-advanced hydraulic system in Ayutthaya. The city welcomed merchants and travelers from around the globe, which left a strong influence on Ayutthaya's architecture. For all of these reasons and more, a day trip to this city is the perfect way to learn more about Thailand's incredible history, culture, art.
