Ayutthaya: Bang Pa’in Summer Palace, Temple Ruins

 

Two weekends ago I went to Ayutthayah, Thailand’s second capital, which is about 40 km north of Bangkok. Ayutthayah is home to many ancient temple ruins, some I believe from the 14th century. Bang Pa’in, or the Summer Palace, is just outside Ayutthayah and was the former residence of many kings of Thailand (I’m really not a history buff, excuse my lack of information..) The architecture borrows from other Asian and Western cultures and is absolutely beautiful. I got pictures of what I could, but I don’t think they do it justice.
