Ayutthaya is a city in Thailand, about 80 kilometers north of Bangkok.
It was the capital of the Kingdom of Siam,
and a prosperous international trading port,
from 1350 until razed by the Burmese in 1767.
The ruins of the old city now form the Ayutthaya Historical Park,
an archaeological site that contains
palaces, Buddhist temples, monasteries and statues.
The buddhist temple falls into one of two broad categories:
the stupa-style solid temple and the Prang-style.
The Prangs can also be found in various forms in
Sukhothai, Lopburi, Bangkok (Wat Arun).
Sizes may vary, but usually the prangs measure between 15 and 40 meters
in height, and resemble a towering corn-cob like structure.
