Chao Sam Phraya National Museum

Museum in Ayuthaya

The most impressive treasure of Ayuthaya's largest museum is the haul of royal gold (jewellery, utensils, gourds, spittoons) unearthed from the crypts of Wat Mahathat and Wat Ratchaburana. Beautifully carved teak friezes, some flecked with gold leaf, and numerous Buddha statues (some sculpted in the 7th century) are also on display.
