Built in 1324, some 26 years before the city of Ayutthaya was officially founded, Wat Phanan Choeng is believed to have been partly connected to early settlements in the area. The temple houses an immense gilded 19 meter (62 feet) high seated Buddha from 1334 AD, which is the center of daily worship.
