Ruins of Ayutthaya


Two Thai women ride on an elephant at the ruins of Ayutthaya.



Ruins of Ayutthaya, founded in 1350, rise in the background as visitors tour on an elephant. Ayutthaya is north of Bangkok and served as the capital of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya from 1350 to 1767 when the city was destroyed by the Burmese army.

The city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
