Ayutthaya

Presentation Wat Mongkhon Bophit

Thai name : วัดมงคลบพิตร
My opinion:
Right next to Wat Phra Si Sanphet, built in the early 20th century, it consists of one single wihaan in a very simple architectural style but on its front, the slopes of the roofs are beautifully decorated and it houses one of the largest bronze Buddhas the country.
On its right, there is a market with souvenir stalls and small places to eat and drink.

You can get to Wat Mongkhon Bophit by renting a bike from one of the many rental shops in downtown Ayutthaya or from your accommodation (they sometimes make them available to their customers for free) or hire the services of a tuk-tuk just to go to this temple or for a whole city tour for a price around 200 THB per hour. Depending on the location of your hotel in Ayutthaya, it may also be easy to get there by walking. Otherwise, you can also rent a scooter at your accommodation sometimes or in town.
