Wat Phra Si Sanphet information
Lonely Planet review
Built in the late 15th century, Wat Phra Si Sanphet was the city's largest temple and used by several kings. It once contained a 16m-high standing Buddha (Phra Si Sanphet) covered with 250kg of gold, which was melted down by Burmese conquerors. The most iconic image in Ayuthaya is of the temple's three magnificent chedi (stupas).
