Ruins of Ayutthaya, Thailand

Ruins of Ayutthaya: There is much more to Thailand than Bangkok and the famous beaches. Kingdom of Ayutthaya is one of those. The Kingdom seem to be influenced by Hinduism  and the epic Ramayan and hence been named similar to the sister city of Ayodhaya in India. However, instead of Lord Rama, Buddha seemed to rule the land 🙂

Temple ruins are scattered around and each is a jewel in its own stead. You can sit here and gaze for hours at its beauty. Very few governments are able to keep ruins as ruins and Thailand has done it beautifully.

Its a short drive from Bangkok for those who may just not want to be away from it!!!!!
