Built in the 14th century for private royal use, Si Sanphet lies just south of the raised Grand Palace area. During the heyday of Ayutthaya, this was the city's largest temple, but little now remains apart from brick foundations and three 15th-century, Sri Lankan-style chedis, enshrining the ashes of three Ayutthayan kings, which are probably the most photographed sight in the historical park.
