Wat Lokaya Sutha (date of construction unknown)

On our second day we were taken to Ayuthaya. We visited the Wat Lokaya Sutha. This temple, constructed at an unknown date, was largely destroyed when the city of Ayutthaya fell to the Burmese in 1767.  Its name means "The Temple of the Earth".  In the ruined viharn is a 42 meter reclining Buddha statue. one of the biggest in thailand.

Wat Lokaya Sutha is in Ayuthaya: old historic capital of Siam (the earlier name of today's Thailand)

Ayuthaya is about 85 km north of Bangkok. It was the capital of Siam from 1350 till 1767, when Burma conquered the city 33 kings of Siam reigned here.  At its peak (about 1700) it had one million inhabitants. Out of this area, there are many old wats (temple-monasteries).

Amust see for all tourist who like ruins and old architectures.
