Ayutthaya, Thailand: a UNESCO World Heritage site

Founded in about 1350, Ayutthaya – just north of Bangkok – was one of the cities that served as capital of the Kingdom of Siam (Sukothai, in central Thailand, was another.) It remained the capital until it was destroyed by invading Burmese forces in the 18th century. I visited Ayutthaya in May 2014, on a holiday commemorating the birth, enlightment, and death of the Buddha, a good time to see some of the temples at their best. Below are two of the short films I made during my visit.
