Historic City of Ayutthaya and Associated Historic Towns Thailand, 2005

Ayutthaya, one of the old capitals of Thailand (then Siam), is filled with the remains of once-grand wats and temples.

Many, if not most, of the impressive Buddha images once resident here have either been destroyed or moved elsewhere, mainly to Bangkok. However, the temples and associated structures left behind are beautiful and stand as a mute echo of former glory.
