Hello everyone,

Wat Yai Chai Monhkon

I’m still in Ayutthaya, Thailand in this post where there are a lot of historical and ancient temples. I’m going to show you the Wat Yai Chai Monkhon, which is no less interesting a temple than Wat Phra Si Sanphet, which I showed you in the last post.

Wat Yai Chai Monkhon

Chedi Chai Monkhon

Wat Yai Chai Monkhon's original name is Wat Pakeaw or Wat Chao Phra Ya Thai, and was built in the 14th century during the reign of King U-Thong. In 1592 King Naresuan won the war with the Burmese crown prince in a duel on elephant back. After that, he constructed the pagoda “Phra Maha Chedi Chai Mongkhon” in memorial of the victory. Most people have called this temple “Wat Yai” or Phra Chedi Yai” until now.

Main Pagoda

Visitors can climb the stairs to see the view over the temple. The pagoda is surrounded with stone buddha statues. Actually, these Buddhas aren’t the originals because some of them were destroyed in the war.

Not far from the entrance gate you will see the Reclining Buddha that was constructed during the reign of King Naresuan and was located in a building known as Wihan Phra Phuttha Saiyat.

Around King Naresuan Monument are thousands of statues of roosters and fighting cocks. The fighting cock of King Naresuan is a symbol of strength and courage.
