Living Ayutthaya in Petchaburi province

Travel piece on Petchaburi province located southwest of Bangkok and its many cultural sites dating to the Ayutthaya period.

Two-and-a-half centuries have passed since the fall of the Ayutthaya Kingdom. The old palace and numerous temples are in ruins and it is hard for people to imagine what the architecture and religious art was like in the past. Fortunately, Thailand still has a “living Ayutthaya” in Phetchaburi province.
