The historic city of Ayutthaya was once the capital of Siam from the mid-1300s until the mid-1700s, when the Burmese overran it. The Burmese burned most of the city down, and all that remains today are the stone buildings. After this, the capital was moved to Bangkok, which was originally set up just as Ayutthaya was.

Visitors can come to Ayutthaya and get a glimpse into what life might have been like when the city was once thriving based on the towering ruins of the temple complexes and reliquary towers that remain.
