Wat Phraya Tikaram is an active monastery. It has all the required structures for providing services to the lay community. Most of the buildings in situ appear to be designed in the Bangkok-Period. The ordination hall was built in an east/west axis. Its triple layered roof frames an intricately carved gable. This has been partially decorated with mirrored-tiles.
The outer walls of the ubosot have been painted yellow, and sema stones (old and new) mark the boundaries. The ordination hall also has a number of votive tablets on display.
Many Buddha images and Hindi deities had been placed in increments around this building. The images are in a variety of poses, but standing and walking Buddha images are a reoccurring theme at Wat Phraya Tikaram (which is uncommon in Ayutthaya).
The bell tower is situated in front of the ordination hall. It has windows in each of its cardinal directions and is flanked by standing Buddha images.
Wat Phraya Tikaram is located off the city island in the eastern part of the city. It can be a bit difficult to find. The best way to see this active monastery is to turn northward on Rojana Road at the busy intersection before Grand Street. It is easy to reach by boat via a canal flowing just north of it.
