[大城] Ayutthaya Historical Park

October 3, 2013

乘搭火车来到了大城(Ayutthaya),我们依照网络上的资料前往目的地。

首先,从火车站步行到小码头。
在这里,就要多注意了。

火车站有好多 tuk tuk 司机会来 offer 游客们一日游,但是价钱都不便宜,而且是以小时计算的。
在网上看到这样的消息,我就根本没有考虑过乘搭 tuk tuk 游大城。


我们是不知道小码头在哪里的,跟着西方背包客的足迹就通常没错,哈哈!
在这里付钱,一个人 4 Baht ,如果带着脚踏车坐船要另加 2 Baht 。


这里就是小码头,我们过对岸咯!


游大城,除了 tuk tuk ,我们可以租借脚踏车或者摩托车。
我们在越南旅行的时候,就爱上了这样的旅游方式,所以当然选择后者。

至于要选择脚踏车还是摩托车……
由于不知道大城有多大,太阳也不是普通的晒,所以最后选择了摩托车。

我们以 200 Baht 租借一天,有点小贵。
小码头附近看到有 150 Baht 一天的,但是既然过对岸了就算了…… (@_@)

Ayutthaya Historical Park

The Historic City of Ayutthaya, founded in 1350, was the second capital of the Siamese Kingdom. It flourished from the 14th to the 18th centuries, during which time it grew to be one of the world’s largest and most cosmopolitan urban areas and a center of global diplomacy and commerce. Ayutthaya was strategically located on an island surrounded by three rivers connecting the city to the sea. This site was chosen because it was located above the tidal bore of the Gulf of Siam as it existed at that time, thus preventing attack of the city by the sea-going warships of other nations. The location also helped to protect the city from seasonal flooding.

Wat Maha That


由于时间短促,我们只来得及参观两个古迹。
第一站,我们来到了 Wat Maha That ,入门票 50 Baht 。

Wat Maha That

Wat Maha That or the “Monastery of the Great Relic” is located on the city island in the central part of Ayutthaya in Tha Wasukri sub-district. The temple is situated on the corner of the present Chikun Road and Naresuan Road. The monastery stood on the west bank of Khlong Pratu Khao Pluak, an important canal, which has been filled up somewhere in the early 20th century. In ancient times the temple was likely fully surrounded by canals and moats. The structure has been registered as a national historic site by the Fine Arts Department on 8 March 1935 and is part of the Ayutthaya World Heritage Historical Park.

这个古迹是我指定要来的,目的是为了这个被大树缠绕着的佛像!

有关树绕佛像的传言,网络上很多,不知道何者为实。
有兴趣的话,在 Google 打一下 “Wat Maha That” ,就会找到很多资料了,呵呵!


跟佛像合照,要蹲着,高度不能超越佛像,以示尊敬。

佛像四周有被围起来了,游客不能靠近,只能远远拍照,好可惜!

Opening Hours: 8.00 am - 6.00 pm





Wat Phra Si Sanphet


其实,我到大城最主要的目的,就是冲着那尊佛像而来。
剩下的古迹,我没有什么特别的想去。

会来这里,是因为这里标榜着 “大城最大的寺庙”
但是没有后悔,因为这里比 Wat Maha That 好逛多了,我喜欢!

入门票,一样是 50 Baht 。

我发现,这里的古迹基本上都是一样价钱(除了一些是免入门票的),
连票根都一样,只是印上不一样的水印以作辨认。

Wat Phra Si Sanphet

Wat Phra Sri Sanphet is situated on the city island in Ayutthaya’s World Heritage Park in Pratu Chai sub-district. It has been registered as a national historic site by the Fine Arts Department since 5 March 1935. This monastery was the most important temple of Ayutthaya and situated within the Royal Palace grounds. It served as a model for the Temple of the Emerald Buddha in Bangkok.

这里有好多这样堆积高高的石头,为了什么呢?

慧妮说想到古迹就想到我,因为我会欣赏?
想说,你太抬举我了,我喜欢古迹,是因为喜欢那份感觉。

你知道吗,就好像连续剧那样,突然时光倒流,出现在你身边的都是以前的场景……

都是想像力作怪,哈哈!


岁月和人为的摧残,很难想像到当初是什么样子的地方了……
有很多倒塌的古迹,如今仍在修建中。

建筑,需要好几年甚至好几十年。
摧毁,却只需那一瞬间。

去走访古迹吧!如果你想寻找这番话的感觉……

大城,让我们见识到的不止是古迹而已。
还有这里的人、这里的美食,都跟曼谷不一样。

如果有时间,在这里住上一晚吧!
你对大城的认识,肯定比一日游来得更深刻!
