Ayutthaya

June 17, 2010

This beautiful card comes from Ayutthaya, Thailand. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Apparently, Ayutthaya was a Siamese kingdom that existed from 1351 to 1767. In 1765, Burmese forces invaded the territories of Ayutthaya from the north and west. Major outlying towns quickly capitulated. The ruins of the historic city of Ayutthaya are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The three pagodas of Wat Phra Si Sanphet house the remains of King Borommatrailokanat, King Borommarachathirat III, and King Ramathibodi II.
Thanks to my Postcrossing friend for this beautiful card, and the lovely stamp too.
