West Corner Chapel of Wat Chaiwattanaram, Ayutthaya
Thailand

Wat Chaiwattanaram of Ayutthaya, Thailand, was built in 1630 by King Prasat Thong (1635-1655, refer to Ayutthaya History) to celebrate his victory over the Khmers. And to make merit for his mother, he sited the temple on his mother's old residence.

This beautiful temple is located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, overlooking Ayutthaya island. The architectural style is reminiscent of Khmer temples, like Angkor Wat, where a main prang is surrounded by four smaller chedis, as a symbolic representation of Mount Meru. A gallery of 120 stucco images can be found running along the four sides of the temple. Within the lesser studas are twelve crowned Buddha images. The ordination hall is located to the east of the main prang. The main prang is 35 meters high. The four chedis surrounding it have seven levels. Wat Chaiwattanaram was a temple where the king and his descendents could perform religious rites. It has also been used for the cremation of the members of the royal family of Ayutthaya. The temple was used as an army camp when Ayutthaya was besieged by the Burmese, in the attack of 1767. When Ayutthaya fell, Wat Chaiwattanaram suffered massive destruction, looting and decapitation of its many Buddha figures. Restoration work was begun by the Fine Arts Department in 1987, and completed in 1992.
