    Re: Ayuttaya Ancient City 2001

    As you can see from my title, I was there on 2001. So these photos are absolutely not the same as Ayuttaya2008 at the moment. By the way, I do not think ,it would change that much

    How to go to Ayuttaya

    1.By train

    It cost you approx 20-50 baht from Hualoompong Train Station around 2 hours.

    2.By car
    The best and easy way to go there . you then can go and drive around place to place.Take approx 1 hour.

    3. By bus
    catch a bus from MorChit Bus Station for 50 baht.

    Formal name: Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya

    A quiet simple town - located 85 km north of Bangkok. It is the capital for Ayyuthaya Province.
    It is known as the old capital and was formed around 1350AD and named after a city in India (Rama's birth place).It is also known as Ayotaya, Ayothaya, Ayudhya, Ayutaya, Ayuthaya and Ayuttaya.
    The meaning of the name is "Undefeatable City". Ironicly, it was defeated by the burmese twice until the capital change to Thonburi and then Bangkok. If one visits the old palace, we can still see the burned down remains and the rubble which is left after the second defeat to the Burmese.
    It has several new and old temples, some museums and parks.

    Pre History

    The kingdom was called Ayuttaya as their name of the capaital. After some time Sukhothai came under the new kingdom. From east the khmers did repetead attacking against Ayuttaya. As an answer his son Rasusuan take over Angchor twenty years later in year 1431. After that the khemrs moved their capital to east to Phon Penh by the Mekong river.

    Ayutthaya became the capital in a glorious empire under many decades with autocrats kings.The capital became a big and important city with international connections. The portuguise was invited as the first european country and they begin with trade in 1500. At the same time the name for the country Siam was taken.

    After the dead of king Ramathibodis II:s year 1529 a period of week kings, complots and scandals followed. This used the king of Burma to attack Ayutthaya several times ehich later was conquerd in year 1569 and Ayutthaya became a sattelite state to Burma. After fifteen years managed the sixteen year old prins Naresuan to take back his land. He had several years before been taking to the court of Burma and there been educated as a warrior. But he returned back to Ayutthaya and shaped an own army and after that he liberated his land. When Naresuan died in year 1605 Ayuttaya was on the top of their power and he leaved a kingdom that no enemy dared to atack for over 150 years.

    In the mid and rest of 17 th centuruy Ayuttaya was a really cosmopolitic city. Historinas claims that the city was the biggest city in the world with over one miljon inhabitans, much bigger than Paris or London. Europeans likened Ayuttaya to Venice in Italy and called Ayuttaya the most beautiful city in the East. Under this period trading agreements had been made with Spain, Holland, England, Japan, Denmark and France. The trading was not made by the thais themselves, instead the buisines was lent over to indians and chines who have imigrated to the kingdom.

    In the mid 18 th century the country once again got week kings and the power of Ayutayas was declining. The main enemy Burma had instead grown in power and was waiting for revenge. After 14 months of besiege Ayuttaya was falling year 1767 in the hands of Burma. Ayutthaya was burned down and destroyed. Thousands of people was killed or moved away as slaves. Only 10.000 people was left in the city after the catastrophe.
