Wat Phutthai Sawan (Ayutthaya-Thailand)
This temple is also known as the “Monastery of Lord Buddha of the Heavens” and, unlike others, it has a wall around the complex. It is located on south bank of Chao Phraya River and built to face east. King U-Thong built it in 1353 on a site where he first settled before he founded Ayutthaya city. It is assumed that enslaved Khmer inhabitants built it, since You can spot some features that are specific for Khmer style. Being placed in the middle, the prang represents Mount Meru, it has a bud-shaped top and a small hall inside, called ‘cella’ which is decorated with paintings. There is also a big Buddha statue in a lying position, outside the viharn. Outside the walls, there is a monastery which is interesting for its mural paintings that depict Buddha’s reincarnations.
