The Ancient Siam Civilization of
Visiting Wat Senasanaram failed several times for
us, since we could not find it on two occasions. We were finally really happy to
find it on the north side of the old
Ayutthaya's ancient city. However, we felt a bit out of place here. It seems that Wat
Senasanaram is used by rich people to make merit and to get their funeral
organized. "Normal" visitors seem to be completely ignored if not run
over by a monk who quickly runs into the Ubosot in order to "serve"
some rich people for a ceremony. Sorry for the harsh comments here, but this is
how we felt. We were hardly even able to pay our respect to the Buddha. Otherwise a beautiful temple with a reclining Buddha image and the
beautiful seated image of Phra Sambuddha Munee (below).
