Thank you!

Ayutthaya’s a little island sitting at the confluence of the Chao Praya, Lopburi and Pasak rivers that became the second capital of the Siamese kingdom (the first was Sukhothai, another World Heritage Site) and was founded in 1350, where it became the seat of the Siamese kingdom until 1767, where, after a series of battles with the Burmese, it was sacked and razed. Despite the total destruction of the royal city, people eventually repopulated the area. Some of the ancient structures were restored during the reign on Rama IV (King Mongkut, who reigned from 1851-1868), and in 1991 the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya was inscribed as a World Heritage Site.

  • The head of Buddha in Wat Mahathat When the Burmese attacked and destroyed Ayutthaya they decapitated all of the statues of Buddha. Today many of the headless Buddha remain as well as a few with the head intact. The Ayutthaya historical park covers the ruins of the old city of Ayutthaya, Thailand, which was founded by King Ramathibodi I in 1350 and was the capital of the country until its destruction by the Burmese army in 1767. In 1969 the Fine Arts Department began with renovations of the ruins, which became more serious after it was declared a historical park in 1976. The park was declared a UNESCO World heritage site in 1991. According to "Tourism Asia,” thirty-three monarchs including King Rama IV governed from Ayutthaya.
  • AYUTTAYA Ayutthaya full name Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya is an ancient capital and modern city in the Central Plains of Thailand, 85 km to the north of Bangkok. Ayutthaya was originally known as "Ayothaya" which refers to the capital of King Rama (see Ramayana). When King Naresuan the Great defeated the Burmese, he changed the name of the city to "Aytthaya" meaning "the undefeatable city".. Among Thai cities, Ayutthaya's English name is probably the least standardized - it is also known as Ayotaya, Ayothaya, Ayudhya, Ayutaya, Ayuthaya and Ayuttaya.
