Muslim Quarter

Interesting area to explore

Photo of , , Ayutthaya

What we say: 2.5 stars

A reflection of the many Persian and Muslim-Indian traders who once made their homes in Ayutthaya, the city is still home for many Thai Muslims.

Although small mosques are spread across town, the best place to explore a village that has been home to Muslims for centuries is the community nestled along the southern banks of the river.

The hotch potch of houses and mosques interconnected by small lanes and pathways makes this an interesting area to explore, and some great Muslim-Thai food can be scored here from hole-in-the-wall shops.

If you find yourself to the northwest side of the island, another smaller Muslim community along the riverside road from Wat Na Phra Men out to Chedi Phu Khao Thong is worth a peek thanks especially to the large and magnificent mosque located there.
