Wat Na Phra Men

An important active temple

What we say: 3 stars

It was restored during the reign of King Rama III and today appears as a somewhat typical, if ornate Thai temple. The main attraction here is a large gold seated Buddha and a beautifully carved ceiling.

An important and active temple in the lives of Ayutthaya residents, Wat Na Phra Men receives few foreign visitors and is a good place to observe traditional Thai temple customs.

If you arrive on a weekend, be prepared for an endless stream of people entering the wiharn to make offerings to the Buddha. A handful of street carts sell cheap food across the road if you get hungry.
