AYUTTHAYA , THE OLD CITY OF THAILAND AND WORLD HERITAGE.
Of the many historic sites frequented by visitors to Thailand, the ruins of the ancient Thai capital, Ayuthaya, are among the easiest and most satisfying to take in. In 1351 a man named U Thong established the city of Ayuthaya (variously Ayudhya, Ayudhaya, Ayutthaya) as his capital city on the Chao Phraya River not for from Thailand’s modern capital, Bangkok. U Thong was probably the son of a Chinese merchant who had married into local nobility; he changed his name to Ramathibodi and set about creating a new center for the Thai world. In 1378, Ayuthaya defeated Sukothai in battle and became the capital, not just of Ramathibodi’s dynasty, but of the entire Thai world. In 1431, the Thai army of Ayuthaya defeated the declining Khmer kingdom of Angkor Wat and sacked Angkor. Ayuthaya was now the leading imperial power of Southeast Asia. The switch from Sukothai to Ayuthaya is historically important for a couple of reasons. One is the change which took place in the nature of the kingship. The king of Sukothai had been called a Dhammaraja (something akin to "lawful king"; the king of Ayuthaya was called a Devaraja - a godking. The change was permanent; the king of Thailand today remains a god in the eyes of his subjects. Another reason the move was historically important is that the center of Thai power shifted closer to the coast. The Thai people became more oriented toward commerce. Their capital would never again move inland. King U Thong (1350-69) was the first of 34 kings in his line; King Ekathat (1758-67) was the last. The royal line of Ayuthaya lasted over a period of 400 years.
The city of Ayuthaya today is a tourist town which survives in the shadow of its illustrious past. A Burmese army invaded Ayuthaya in 1765. It took the Burmese two years to take the city. They destroyed everything: manuscripts, temples, and religious sculpture melting many of the gilded statues and domes for their gold. The Burmese managed to control Ayuthaya for only a couple of years. Phaya Taksin, a half-Chinese, half-Thai general, make himself king in 1769. He established a new capital of Thonburi, on the Chao Phraya River, just opposite Bangkok. But Ayuthaya was never restored to its old glory.

Summer Palace Bang Pa In, Summer Palace or Bang Pa-in Palace, a complex of royal residences first built in around the 17th century to serve as a summer palace of Ayutthaya kings. It was later abandoned and ruined until King Mongkut (Rama IV) restored the complex. Most of the buildings we see today were ordered to build during the reign of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V), who regularly spent his summers here with his royal consorts. Each building features different architectural style: for example, Wehat Chamroon Palace, the only royal residence currently open to public, was built in a traditional Chinese style with materials imported from China while Aisawan Tippaya Asna Pavilion set in the middle of the lake features traditional Thai style embedded with colorful glass mosaics. On the other side finds a monument of Queen Sunanta, King Rama V's royal consort, and their son who were died in a boat accident. Bang Pa-in Palace is, slightly similar to the Grand Palace, divided into two zones: the outer zone for royal ceremonies and the inner zone that is reserved only for the king, his consorts and their small chikdren. Places of interest in outer zone:
• Ho Hemmonthian Thewarat is the stone Prang (pagoda) under a banyan tree near the pond within the outer part of the royal court, where an image of a deity is housed. King Rama V ordered its construction in 1879 to replace an old shrine built by villagers as an offering to King Prasatthong of the Ayutthaya period.
• Aisawanthipphaya-At Pavilion A Thai design pavilion in the middle of the pond was built in the reign of King Rama V. Originally built of wood throughout, King Rama VI commanded to change the floor and pillars to be reinforced concrete.
• Warophatphiman Hall was formerly a two-story wooden villa served as a royal living quarter and throne hall. Later during his reign, King Rama V ordered the reconstruction, replacing with a European-style to serve as a throne hall for royal ceremonies.
• Saphakhan Ratchaprayun. This two-storey building was a resident of relatives of the king and non-consort members and is now an exhibition hall displaying the history of Bang Pa-in Palace.
Places of interest in inner zone:
• Phra Thinang Utthayan Phumisathian is a 2-story, pink-colored, Victorian style mansion serving as a residence for members of the royal family and their guests. The only mansion in Bang Pa-in Palace that is not open to public, this building is actually a new building ordered a construction by HM Queen Sirikit in 1938 to replace the old one, which was made of wood in Swiss chalet style and was burnt down in a fire accident.
• Wehat Chamrun Hall was the latest mansion during the reign of King Rama V, built in 1889 as the royal offering by the wealthy Chinese merchants led by Phraya Choduk Ratchasetthi (Fak). The mansion was crafted in traditional Chinese Emperor style and was used as a royal residence for King Rama V, his queen and their son, King Rama VI during a royal visit in the cool.
Wat Mahathat, Wat Mahathat ( Buddha Tree ) Wat Mahathat or Buddha Tree.If you have seen a postcard with a the head of the Buddha in a tree trunk and roots grow around it and wonder where to find this amazing piece of natural art, Maha That temple is a place to go. The temple locates in Ayutthaya province. Wat Maha That Temple is one of the oldest and most significant temples in the history of Ayutthaya era as it housed the Bhuddha’s holy relic. The temple was also a palace of the Supreme Patriarch of Bhuddhist Kamma monks.Nowadays, the Mahathat temple locates in Ayutthaya Historical Park area. There are remains of interesting old buildings such as pagodas, octagonal pagodas, royal hall, small temples, murals under the Bodhi tree, and the sand stone Ayutthaya style head of the Buddha in the root.
Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is located in Pratu Chai subdistrict, Phra Nakorn Si Ayutthaya district, Ayutthaya province. The temple is not only a significant historical site, but also considered as the spiritual center of Thais for a long time. Situated within the royal palace grounds, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is the royal monastery and therefore no monk is allowed to reside at. However, the temple served to conduct ceremonies within the royal court, such as the ritual to drink an oath of allegiance. It is also regarded as an equivalence of Wat Mahathat in Sukhothai and a model for Wat Phra Sri Ratana Sasadaram (the royal temple of the Emerald Buddha) or Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok.
Vihara Phra Mongkhon Bophit, Viharn Pra Mongkolborpit is situated on the south of Wat Prasrisanpetch and is where the bronze Buddha image in the attitude of subduing Mara is situated. This Buddha image has a lap measurement at 9.55 metres and height at 12.45 metres. This is one of the biggest Buddha image in Thailand. It was assumed to be built during the Ayuttaya Era of King Srongtam. The King transferred the location from the east side to the west side which has been the location since then. After that the King ordered to build a dome on top.
Wat Lokaya Sutharam, Or Reclining Buddha Temple Ayutthaya,Wat Lokayasutharam is situated at Pratoochai District, behind the Ancient Palace and the Pratoochai Primary School, in the area 0f Wat Worapoh (Wat Rakhang) and Wat Worachettharam. Wat Lokayasutharam is 800 meters from Wat Phra Mongkon Bophit. Wat Worachettharam and Wat Worapoh are also closeby. Nevertheless, we had quite some difficulty finding Wat Lokayasutharam, likely our otherwise good Ayutthaya map, was a bit off the mark. The important feature Wat Lokayasutharam is a huge reclining Buddha image, called Phra Bhuddhasaiyart, which faces to the east.It was constructed of bricks and cement in the art style cf the Middle Ayutthaya Period. It is 37 meters long and 8 meters high. There are other impressive Reclining Buddha Images in Ayutthaya, but this seems to be the largest. The head is placed on a lotus, and the legs overlap squarely to show the equalized toes.
Wat Na Phra Men, or Wat Naphra Meur, The Monastery in Front of the Funeral Pyre sometimes called Wat Na Phra Meru is located off the city island in the northern area of Ayutthaya in Tha Wasukri sub-district. Wat Na Phra Men is located along Khlong Sra Bua and the north bank of the Khlong Mueang just opposite the Ancient Grand Palace.
