Temples of Ayuthaya

Here are some pictures from Ayuthaya, the old capital of Thailand.

We took a boat trip around the city, which is surrounded on all sides by moats. The boat drops you off at different temples and you have 20 minutes to walk around.


A cool room in the back of one of the temples

There are Buddhist and Hindu gods at most of the temples.

Big buddha!

I think this guy worked here... 

Picture is a little blurry, but you can see the motorcyclists taking the ferry across the river. Cool eh?

Tchu descends the stairs

Lots of Buddhas everywhere.

Even a Catholic Church! 

Here's a temple from the Khmers, which is in the same style of the ones at Angkor Wat.
