 Known as:        
 Description:   Wat Takrai or the Monastery of the Scissors is a restored ruin located off the city
island in the northern area of Ayutthaya in Khlong Sra Bua Sub-district. The temple ruins
are located west of Khlong Sra Bua (Lit: Canal of the Lilly Pond).
The substantial site consists of an ordination hall, a vihara with large chedi, a prang, and
several satellite chedis. The ordination hall (ubosot) is a rectangular building, 16
meters long on 12 meters wide. There were two entries in the front and two in the back.
The pedestal for the Buddha's image stood west, indicating the statue was looking to the
east. The assembly or sermon hall (Wihan) is again a classic rectangular structure of
26 meters long and 12 meters wide. The building has porches in the front and in the
back. There are three entries in the front. Also here the main Buddha image faces east as
the pedestal stands in the west.
