Wat Worapho : Ayutthaya, Thailand

Wat Worapho is located on the city island on the corner of U-Thong Road and Khlong Tho. It is directly west of the Royal Palace, but can only be entered via U-Thong Road. It is an active monastery with monks in Ayutthaya, Thailand.

The name “Wat Worapho” is also commonly applied to a restored ruin situated in the protected park just south of this monastery. This deserted temple was originally named Wat Rakhang, and it now belongs to the Fine Arts Department. In contrast, Wat Worapho is an active site that provides clerical services to the lay community. The two places are also separated by a fence and a significant distance. Therefore, for the sake of research, the two monasteries are considered separate entities. The name Wat Worapho is applied to this small but active monastery; however, the link to Wat Rakhang should also be viewed for additional historical details.
