Official description

The Wat Mahathat is an impressive temple ruin constructed to house Buddha relics that mysteriously appeared to an early Ayutthayan king. The temple was built in the Khmer style in 1374, then destroyed by the Burmese. Most of its artefacts are at the Chao Sam Phraya National Museum. The temple is famed for Buddha images that have tree roots grown around them.
