Preservation of the 17th-Century Wat Chaiwatthanaram at Ayutthaya, Phase 2

This project, which continues work begun under previous Ambassadors Fund grants and involves the conservation of several stupas, supports the U.S. embassy’s efforts to highlight shared values and the role of the United States as a trusted ally.

Severe flooding in 2011 damaged the brickwork, stucco, woodwork and mural paintings of the wat, one of the central landmarks of Ayutthaya, the former capital of the Kingdom of Siam. [Photo credit: Project organizer]
