Wat Phraya Man
Wat Phraya Man is a massive, age-old structure located in northern Ayutthaya, complete with an ubosot or ordination hall, a bell tower and two prangs or towers.
Believed to have been restored and made a monastery during the prosperous reign of the great king King Phetracha in the late 17th century, the temple retains much of its structure from those days.
The temple premises consist of all the significant structures of a Buddhist monastery – Ubosot, two Prangs and a Belltower. Although an abandoned temple set in the open air, it is a calm and quiet place ideal for peaceful meditation. It may also interest those with an eye for history and ancient architecture. And it is an excellent place for uninterrupted photo-ops, as it is one of the lesser-known temples of Ayutthaya.
