A graceful reclining Buddha...

My experience, Explo description: 

The temple is situated close to the Wat Worapoh and Wat Worachettharam.

The must see of this wat is a huge reclining Buddha, Phra Budhasaiyart, located in a ruined viharn and facing towards the East.

This reclining Buddha was constructed of bricks and cement in the Middle Ayutthaya Period and is 37 meters long and 8 meters high. As the head is resting on a lotus, the legs overlap squarely to show the equalized toes.

My personal recommendations: 

This wat was important and you can still see many vestiges around the reclining Buddha. Only if you have time, you can stroll around, but the place is really touristic.

How getting there: 

The best way to visit Ayutthaya is to rent a motorbike ($10). You can also rent bicycles ($1), but as you will have to go on long distance, I do not advise you this solution, except if you just want to focus on Ayutthaya city centre (but then you will miss many nice visits around the city !).

A tip to eat: 

Just opposite to the reclining Buddha, you can find many Thai food stalls, standing under shady trees.
