Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon - The Impressive Stupa (Chedi) And Rows Of Dozens Of Stone Phra Buddha Statues - Ayutthaya - Thailand (Part 2/2).

The main bell-shaped chedi at Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon is one of the distinctive landmarks of Ayutthaya. Visitors can climb the steps that lead up to a platform for views over the temple complex. A rectangular gallery surrounds the chedi and is lined with dozens of stone Buddha images. The originals would have been covered in gold, but today saffron coloured sashes are used instead. Although these aren’t the original statues visitors should still treat them with respect.
