Description

Buddha head overgrown by tree. Buddha head encased in tree roots at the temple of Wat Mahatat in Ayutthaya near Bangkok, Thailand. Ayutthaya (full name Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, also spelled "Ayudhya") city is the capital of Ayutthaya province in Thailand. The city was founded in 1350 by King U-Thong, who came here to escape a smallpox outbreak in Lop Buri, and proclaimed it the capital of his kingdom, often referred to as the Ayutthaya kingdom or Siam. Ayutthaya was named after the city of Ayodhya in India, the birthplace of Rama in the Ramayana (Thai, Ramakien). In 1767 the city was destroyed by the Burmese army, and the ruins of the old city now form the Ayutthaya historical park, which is recognized internationally as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city was refounded a few kilometers to the east. It is estimated that Ayutthaya around ca. 1600 had a population of ca. 300,000, and even 1,000,000 around 1700. In that era Ayutthaya belonged thus to the world's largest cities.

    • Find synonyms, like “butter” instead of “margarine”, or “pop” vs. “soda”.
    • Try “general” versions of your search, like “alien” instead of “martian” or “burger” instead of “big mac”.
    • For long queries, like “cat jumping out of a yellow brick window”, try deleting some words, in this case you would try “cat jumping yellow window”. This is merely an example.
