Presentation Wat Ratchaburana

Thai name : วัดราชบุรณะ
My opinion:
opposit to Wat Mahathat, Wat Ratchaburana is a Khmer style temple built in the 15th century. It is especially noted for its large prang visible from afar and very well preserved. It is possible to climb inside the prang and take the stairs leading to two unrestored rooms where original paintings are still visible on the walls.

How to get to Wat Ratchaburana ?

To get to Wat Ratchaburana like most temples in Ayutthaya city center or nearby, you can choose to rent a bike from one of the many rental shops in the city or from your hotel or guesthouse (they sometimes make them available for their hosts for free) or rent a tuk-tuk and just to go to this specific temple or for a whole city tour for a price around 200 THB per hour. Otherwise, it is also possible to rent a scooter, sometimes at your hotel, or from rental companies in town.
