Wat Mahathat, Ayutthaya

a BMW tuk tuk in Ayutthaya
Wat Mahathat was built in 1374
served as a royal monastery
it was home to the head monk then
this place is huge
since it was so hot and sunny we only circled a few cluster of interesting sites
some of the prangs collapsed over the years due to earthquakes
u can see some of the ruins were leaning on one side
but the main attraction was this one
the head of the Buddha was wrapped around by this Bodhi tree
it's funny how nature created this
