Wat Na Phra Men (Ayutthaya-Thailand)
Na Phra Men is one of the rare temples that have survived the Burmese invasion. It is located north of the Royal Palace and its construction took place in 1503, during the reign of king Ramathibodi. According to history data and its name, this site was used to cremate royal army prisoners. Today, it has a reputation as a place of both national and historic significance and displays a fourth eldest Buddha statue in Thailand. The stone statue is interesting because it has some unusual features, like hands resting on knees or one knee that is uncovered, and being dressed in royal attire. It is placed in an Ordination Hall which displays specific artefacts of the construction period.
