Ruins of Ayutthaya

We visited two areas of Ayutthaya with ruins. We saw the famous Buddha head that is cradled by the roots of a tree.
We saw many, many Buddhas. Many of them were missing their heads or other parts. When invaders came in they tried to destroy the Buddhas. Why can't people just get along? I did not pose with any of the Buddhas. I think it is disrespectful. We saw one lady posing behind a headless/armless Buddha--putting her head in arms in place. That's tacky.

Seeing the ruins at sunset was spectacular.
