Historic City of Ayutthaya

The historic city of Ayutthaya seems to be an amazing place! I wonder how would it be if hadn't been destroyed by the Burmese army!

Wat Chaiwatthanaram (Thaiวัดไชยวัฒนาราม) is a Buddhist temple in the city of Ayutthaya Historical ParkThailand, on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, outside Ayutthaya island. It is one of Ayutthaya's best known temples and a major tourist attraction.
The temple was constructed in 1630 by the king Prasat Thong as the first temple of his reign, as a memorial of his mother's residence in that area. The temple's name literally means the Temple of long reign and glorious era. It was designed in Khmer style, which was popular in that time. - in: wikipedia
