According to the Chronicles, in 1369, the second generation of Ayutthaya, the king of Lama, chosen Wat Phra Ram as the cremation place for his father’s first king. The beautiful Khmer-style stupa, which is now seen by tourists, was built by the king of the city in the 15th century.

There are many different styles of stupa buildings, and there is a square cloister made up of stone Buddha statues. There are many towers in the temple, which combine the characteristics of the Khmer Tower, the Ceylon Tower, and the Murray Tower.
The Wat Phra Ram in Ayutthaya has a history of more than 600 years, and his architectural style is very similar to that of Angkor. The pagoda in the temple is shaped like a corn cob and shows the streamlined beauty. The entire area of the scenic area is very large, and there are many different kinds of towers, which are worth everyone to visit.
