Ayuthaya Day Tour
BANG PA-IN Summer Palace was first used by the royal court as a summer retreat in the 17th century. However, the Palace was destroyed with the fall of Kingdom of Ayutthaya and was restored by King Rama IV in the mid-19th century. Most of the buildings that exist today date from the reign of King Rama V, who regularly spent his summers there. The structures represent a variety of architectural styles, set in a large park around ponds and waterways. The only royal residence open to the public is the Chinese-style Wehat Chamroon Palace, constructed entirely of materials imported from China. In addition, there is an Italian-style palace, a circular pavilion with steps leading down to a pool, the graceful Thai-style Aisawan Tippaya Asna Pavilion in the middle of a lake, and, across one of the waterways, a Buddhist chapel in the neo-Gothic style with stained-glass windows. Scattered around the extensive gardens are European statues as well as monuments ordered to be built by King Rama V in memory of members of his family, one of them a much-loved Queen who drowned in a boating accident.
Visit WIHAN PHRA MONGKHON BOPHIT. Phra Mongkhon Bophit, a large bronze cast Buddha image was originally enshrined in the open area outside the Grand Palace and later covered by a building in the reign of king Songtham. During the fall of Ayutthaya, the building was badly destroyed by fire. The one currently seen was reconstructed, but does not have as beautiful craftmanship as the previous one. The open area east of the sanctuary was where the royal cremation ceremonies took place. Visit WAT PHRA SI SANPHET. This is the most important temple within the Royal Palace compound and the original from which the Temple of the Emerald Buddha in Bangkok has been copied.
Drive to WAT YAI CHAIMONGKOL, a prominent monastery during Ayutthaya period. Built by King U-Thong in 1356 A.D., the monastery had been dedicated to those monks who returned from studying practical Buddhism from Ceylon. Wat Yai Chiamongkol is an important landmark in Ayutthaya due to its large pagoda which can be seen from distant. The pagoda was built to celebrate the victory of a single-handed combat on the elephant’s back of King Naresuan over the Burmese warlord.
Onward to WAT MAHATHAT where you can see a spectacular Buddha head, engulfed in the Bodhi tree trunk. Built in the 14th century A.D., Wat Mahathat was once the residence of the Supreme Patriarch (the leader of the Buddhist monk). It represents the typical ruins of Ayutthaya temples. The crumbling central Prang and stupas with rows of headless Buddha statues give evidence to the splendid glory of the Ayutthaya civilization.
