In 2018 I was in Ayuthaya and did visit the Wat Yao Chai Monkol, located just on the outside of the inner-city of Ayuthaya in Central Thailand and is part of the second ancient capital city of Siam (as Thailand was called until 1932). This temple is officially named "Wat Phra Chao Phaya-Tai" and was build in 1357 by King U-Tong but originally called the "Wat Pa Kaeo". This temple features a huge chedi that can be seen from far away. You can go inside and up the Chedi for a beautiful view over Ayuthaya town. On the temple grounds you will also see a huge Reclining Buddha image. Like most temples in Ayuthaya the entrance is open from 8:00 to 17:00 and there is an entrance fee. Following are some photos of this impressive temple.
I made this non-commercial travel blog for the sheer love of traveling and to make off the beaten track places more accessible for English speaking tourists and people living in Thailand. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster
I belong to that race of men that don't fit in, a race that can't sit still, so they break the hearts of kith and kin and they roam the world at will.
In 1985 I started to roam the world at will in Indonesia & Thailand and since then I did not stop. And now living in Thailand I am still roaming the world.
