Description: Following Sukhothai, Ayutthaya (founded in 1350) became the second Siamese capital. The Burmese destroyed it in the 18th century. Characterized by the prang (reliquary towers) and massive monasteries, its vestiges present an image of its past splendour. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
