Wat Maheyong (Ayutthaya-Thailand)
Wat Maheyong Monastery was built by the Order of Saint Sornde Phra Boroon Rajatheraj II when the Burmese King directed his troops to Ayutthaya. The Order later used the temple as the place from where orders during the war were being issued. Luang Prasoet chronicles says that the temple was built in 1438 during the reign of King Borrommarach II from the Suphannaphum dynasty (also known as King Thai Sa). However, later Royal Chronicles of Ayutthaya which had been written after the fall of the city recorded the year 1424 as a year of construction and the year of crowning of King Borrommarach. The temple was restored in 1709 under the orders of King Tai Sra and the renovation lasted for 3 years. It is assumed that the monastery was named after the famous temple of Mahiyanganna in the south of Sri Lanka.
