In Pictures: Wat Phu Khao Tong (Golden Mountain Temple), Ayutthaya, Thailand

The wife and I recently went on a month-long travel vacation. One of our stops was the ancient kingdom of Ayutthaya in Thailand. The first Wat (temple) we visited in Ayutthaya was the impressive  Wat Phu Khao Tong  (Golden Mountain Temple).

Notice the golden tip?

Climb the steps up the temple, and one gets a wonderful view of the surrounding area from this level.

We went here as part of a tour that we booked from our hotel in Bangkok. I later found out that most group tours do not pass by this temple. I guess we were lucky. This temple was one of the nicest we saw in Thailand.
