Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon, Ayutthaya

Seeking Advice

Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon was built in 1357 AD by King U-thong for meditation. It is said that royals would seek advice here during the Ayutthaya period which was the ancient capital city in 1351-1767. I climbed up the chedi to find a hallway with people praying and sticking gold leaves on to the Buddhas, several people were also throwing these gold leaves down to the bottom.
