This is 4th largest reclining Buddha statue in Thailand. The temple encasing the Buddha was destroyed by the Burmese during the war in 1767. While the statue might appear as stone painted but it is actually brick and plaster only like most of the Ayutthya buildings. One of the other things worth noticing is that there is a lotus on which Buddha's head is resting.     There are small shops in front of this huge Reclining Buddha in Ayutthaya and there are restrooms for tourists.     This reclining Buddha is not bigger than what you see in Wat Pho of Bangkok. There are some ruins nearby this grand Reclining Buddha in Ayutthaya town of Thailand. This place is relatively quiet and that makes it a place to unwind and just enjoy the atmosphere/peace.     Reclining Buddha in Ayutthaya is a free place to visit. There are less places in Ayutthaya where you are not supposed to pay anything and this is one of them. We spent around 10-15 minutes around this place and then started walking back.
