Wat Mahathat is home to Ayutthaya's most famous image, a Buddha head engulfed in the roots of a fig tree. The surrounding temple dates to the 14th century.

 

Whenever I travel somewhere, I also check out Flickr to see any interesting photographic spots. This head and tree is quite popular on Flickr.

As we took the train up to Ayutthaya, I kept pondering how to get an original view of the head. Decided to go with a wide angle. I'm not sure I succeeded, though.
