Wat Phanancheong – Part of Ayutthaya Historical Park, Wat Phanan Choeng Worawihan represents a Buddhist temple built in the 12th century and features a large, gold, seated Buddha. This particular Buddha image is very important for Thais and Thai-Chinese, who considered it the guardian of mariners.
Wat Mahathat – a royal monastery, served as the seat of the Sangaraja, the head of the Buddhist monks of the Kamavasi Sect, since the time of the Mahathera Thammakanlayan who built the Wat. This Wat at one time housed an unusual Buddha image made of green stone and seated on a throne. The image was moved to Wat Na Phra Meru in the Rattanakosin Period by King Rama III.
Wat Lokkaya (Wat Pranon) – Wat Lokaya Sutha is a massive temple ruin. It is aligned toward an east/west axis. There are two small chedi outside of its compound, and a portion of the spire of a third chedi is
still in situ. These are all in a Late Ayutthaya period style. The monastery itself has been heavily restored, including floor tiles and brick floors throughout. Most of the temple exists only at the basic foundation level. This includes some stubs of pillars and basic walls. At the eastern entrance are the remnants of three vihans. Behind these sermon halls is a large 30 meters high,
Wat Chai Wattanaram – Identified by cultural historians as the structure most emblematic of Buddhism’s influence on Thai society, the Buddhist temple of Wat Chaiwatthanaram was commissioned in 1630 by King Prasat Thong in the traditional style with Khmer influences. The temple is situated 80 kilometers north of Bangkok within the ancient city of Ayutthaya, the capital of the Siamese kingdom (1350–1767).
