Ketsurang, a plump archaeologist, inadvertently travels back in time from the present day to the reign of the Ayutthaya Kingdom’s King Narai the Great (1656-1688) over 300 years ago. Her soul resides in the body of a gorgeous yet mean woman, Karaket, whose soul left her body for hell due to her severe sins. While in the Ayutthaya Kingdom, she is mesmerised by the traditional way of life and the stunning beauty of palaces, temples, rivers, markets and forts. The novel-turned-TV series Bupphesanniwat (Love Destiny) is very popular nationwide and tens of thousands fans flock to Ayutthaya to visit the ancient sites.
