Wat Tha Ka Rong

Buddhist Temple in Ayuthaya

With animatronic skeletons, super-sized crow sculptures and armless statues, Wat Tha Ka Rong is eerie and playful in equal measure. The temple, northwest of the island, is peopled by Buddhist, Hindu, animist and just-for-fun statues. Beware the skeletons doing the wâi (palms-together Thai greeting); they have motion sensors.
