Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon : Ayuthaya

Wat Yai, as the locals call it, is south-east of the town proper, but can be reached by minibus. It's a quiet, old place that was once a famous meditation temple, built in 1357 by King U Thong. The compound contains a very large chedi from which the wat takes its popular name (Yai means 'Big') and a large reclining Buddha. There is a community of (Buddhist nuns) residing here.
