Wat Lokayasutharam


Wat  Lokayasutharam is a Buddhist Wat (and it's surrounding area) which we were lucky to visit when we were visiting Ayutthaya.




The people selling you pieces were quietly visible - to put it simply the visit was beautiful.



Even the feet...



The focus of the visit was clearly the reclining Buddha - 

The important feature Wat Lokayasutharam is a huge reclining Buddha image, called Phra Bhuddhasaiyart, which faces to the east. It was constructed of bricks and cement in the art style cf the Middle Ayutthaya Period. It is 37 meters long and 8 meters high - http://www.ayutthaya2020.com/phranoon.asp.



There was really not a lot more to find out but that it was part of a greater area. 




Happy to see no abuse of the area.



The beauty of our visit was the serene quality of the face...
