  • Enter the gate and there is a Nirvana statue on the back of the left wall. I was surprised that the priest also took a commemorative picture in front. I hear that I can put a baht coin on the back of the foot and wish come true. I tried to challenge myself, but unfortunately I did not.

  • It is a temple in Ayutthaya where you can climb quite a huge pagoda. Because the stairs with the step continues, it is necessary to have decent physical strength.
