Wat Ratchaburana temple, in Ayutthaya, stands out for having a large prang recently restored to its original condition, clearly visible if you come in from the east.
A major find of golden statues and other paraphernalia was made here in 1958, although much was subsequently stolen by robbers — the remnants are now in the Chao Sam Phraya Museum. You can climb inside the prang for nice views and a little exhibit. The mysterious staircase down, leads to two unrestored rooms with original paintings still visible on the walls.
Price: 50 baht.
