Wat Kudi Dao

Ruins in Ayuthaya

Though it's not yet near Indiana Jones levels, forest is slowly reclaiming this attractive ruin. Knowledge is hazy about its construction date and history, but its huge bell-shaped stupa and imposing walls are worth exploring nonetheless.

Wat Kudi Dao is 1km northeast of the train station. It's well beyond the stomping ground of most visitors, so you'll likely have this ruin to yourself, compounding the site's eerie ambience.
