    Wow.. I’ve never read about Ayutthaya’s history before. Sad how a war/ violence can completely change a nation/ city’s status and it’s future, in so many ways.. Nevertheless, Ayutthaya looks really interesting. The temples alone are incredible and such an awesome site to see!

      Hi Marvi, I’m glad you loved the article. It indeed is fascinating and scary at the same time, the power of history. Ayutthaya is really an amazing place that gives you a glimpse of history

    Really interesting post! I’d not really heard much about Ayutthaya previously. Crazy to think how quickly it went wrong and cool to see what’s left! Definitely one to visit

    1 million population in 1700s? Whoa! That must have been one heck of an awesome city then! Too bad that it fell into oblivion. I may never get tired on seeing the temples…

    Thanks for the adventure!

    And the philosophy. What great cities will be ruins in another two centuries, I wonder. People will wander around the ruins of the Statue of Liberty, the Kremlin, marvelling at how and why they let it all go to hell.

    The temples of Ayutthaya are one of a kind. They are a testimony to the glory of the largest city that once stood around them – isn’t it? A must visit I would say and totally agree with you about the experience! Will use your writing as my guide when I go there.

    Wow! This place looks beautiful. Sometimes the most amazing places get shadowed by some other famous cities or sights. Looks like there weren’t a lot of people so you got really cool pictures. I will have to remember this place when visiting.

      Yes Paula, it is an amazing place. There weren’t a lot of people because I visited in the offseason when there weren’t a lot of tourists
