⭐️ Wat Phra Si Sanphet, Ayutthaya, Thailand.
⭐️ The final chedi was constructed during the reign of King Borommaracha Thirat IV (r. 1529-1533) to house a relic of King Rama Thibodi II.
During the reign of King Narai, the cross-shaped viharn at the west side of the temple was added. In recognition of its benefactor, it is known as the Prasat Phra Narai. It is not clear if the square mondop structures adjacent to the chedi were built around this time or later. The temple reached the peak of its glory by 1767.On the eve of the Burmese invasion, the central portion of the temple included three gilded chedis, three gilded mondop (square buildings adjacent to the chedis that held objects of worship), and two enormous viharn. All but the chedi were completely destroyed in the sack of 1767.
The present form of the temple includes all of the buildings that survived the sack of 1767. In the early twentieth century only the easternmost chedi was still standing. The rest were restored, but the two viharns have not been rebuilt. Their remains are visible even now. The famed Phra Si Sanphet Buddha statue that was once in the east viharn was melted down in the 1767 sack, with only its bronze core remaining. Of the mondops, little remains but portions of the base.

Letting the late summer breeze inside ☀️💨 Our new office has these beautiful (yet super unpractical) windows. It’s a heritage of the industrial culture. Built in 1800 and completed with a factory building in 1889, the building has served as a foundry until 2001. Furthermore it’s the former home of the well-known Berlin exhibition house for photography C/O Berlin, which is now based in Charlottenburg. Still looking for the spirit. 😇
