Global Treasures - Ayutthaya Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Thailand DVD Features
Eighty kilometres north of Bangkok is Thailand's former capital city of Ayutthaya, a famous historical site that is both exotic and atmospheric.
For more than four hundred years Ayutthaya, Siam's former glorious capital city, was the residence of no less than thirty three kings and five dynasties.
The royal temple of Wat Phra Sri Samphet that is dominated by three Chedis is one of the most famous ruins in Ayutthaya. Within the Chedis, that are of typical Ceylonese bell-shaped design, are the ashes of three prominent Thai kings.
The ruins of Ayutthaya still provide an insight into its original size and ancient splendour. Indeed, it is an historic metropolis whose dimensions once even surpassed today's modern cities of both Paris and London.
