Ayutthaya: The Ruin City of Thailand


Once regarded as one of the most prosperous cities of the world, Ayutthaya was the capital of Thailand for 417 years. Just 85 kilometres north of the bustling city of Bangkok, Ayutthaya will mesmerize you with its glorious past and gorgeous historical ruins. The island city was a major trading port, where international merchants used to visit it from different parts of the world. In the 17th century, it became the largest city in the world with a total of 1 million inhabitants. This ancient city was founded as Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya by King U-Thong in 1350 and was the capital of Siam. During this period, 33 kings of various Siam dynasties ruled this kingdom until it was plundered by the Burmese in 1767. The invasion made a major impact, leaving this city in ruins, enslaving thousands of its citizens, and it became an abandoned place for many decades. Though independence was gained within a year, but the capital was shifted to what is now known as Bangkok.
Located on the bank of Chao Phraya River, Ayutthaya will take you a few decades back with its magnificent cultural heritage. The towering monuments, historical ruins, mesmerizing Buddhist temples and treasure laden palaces will give you a glimpse of its celebrated past. I was spellbound by the first look of it. Not too far away from the maddening crowd, chaotic city life and a crazy traffic in Bangkok, Ayutthaya impressed me with its landscape and the lifestyle of the people. The slow and steady lifestyle of this part of Thailand is one of the delightful aspects of this region. This archaeological ruin city gives you enough reasons to be part of its defining history.
