Product Description: 

North of Bangkok is Thailand’s former capital city of Ayutthaya, an historical site that is both exotic and atmospheric. For more than 400 years, Ayutthaya Kingdom, "Siam," a capital city, was the residence of 33 kings and five dynasties. The royal temple of Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, dominated by three chedi, is one of the most famous ruins in Ayutthaya. Within the chedis, that are typical Ceylonese bell shaped designs, are the ashes of three prominent Thai kings. The ruins of Ayutthaya provide an insight into its original size and ancient splendor. It is an historic metropolis whose dimensions once surpassed today's modern cities of Paris and London.
