AYUTTHAYA - Wat Phanan Choeng

On my last trip to Thailand, I went to Ayutthaya, the ancient city and old capital of Thailand. The tour guide took us here, Wat Chanan Choeng - the largest Buddha figure in Thailand. This figure is 19 meters in height and 21 meters in width. Here's sharing some photos:


Outside the temple, people praying.


Beautiful lotuses for offering.


Inside the temple:





They were changing the clothes of this Buddha statue, so it was packed and crammed with people inside.



Some of my favourite shots.





How interesting. A donation tree, money on banana trunk.




The entrance..it was really a busy day for all.



Outside a Chinese temple, as usual with their dragon coiling around most pillars.


Happy week ahead :)
