Another temple ruin that we visited in Thailand last year was the Wat Lokaya Sutha also called “the Temple of the Earth.” Like the Wat Mahathat, this is also located in Ayutthaya, Thailand. The Wat Lokaya Sutha was one of the monasteries destroyed by the invading Burmese armies in 1767.

According to Renown Travel, the Wat Lokaya Sutha is an old monastery famous for the huge reclining Buddha image that measures 42 meters long. The image is usually covered with an orange cloth, which wasn’t there at the time of our visit.


It is not known when the Wat Lokaya Sutha was constructed but its style of architecture dates back to the early Ayutthaya period. A small altar stands in front of the reclining Buddha where people put their offerings. On the altar is a much smaller version of the reclining Buddha.
