Chedis of the Wat Si Sanphet, Ayutthaya, Thailand
View of two of the three bell-shaped Chedis (royal tombs) of the Wat Phra Si Sanphet temple (constructed between 1492 and 1532) at Ayutthaya, Thailand. The temple took its name from the large standing Buddha image erected there in 1503 -- it was destroyed when the Burmese sacked the city in 1767.
