Travel Photo: Monks at Ayutthaya Temple Complex

Ayutthaya, an ancient capital of Thailand is a great place to explore if you are a history and temple lover. This second capital of Siam after Sukhothai was founded in 1350 and is located at the confluence of three rivers: the Chao Phraya river, the Lopburi river and the Pa Sak river. What was once a thriving and rich royal city is today a cluster of temples and ruins that is collectively recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site.

A lot of tourists choose to explore this historical park as part of a day trip from Bangkok as it is a 2 hour drive away. If you are a out and out history lover, then you should base yourself here for three days or more and explore the whole of Ayutthaya at leisure. But, if you are not that much into history like me, a day trip should suffice as it gives you ample opportunity to explore all the main sites of Ayutthaya and its various temples. I shot this photo while on such a day trip from Bangkok.
