History[edit]

A train at Ayutthaya railway station

Ayutthaya railway station was built during the reign of King Chulalongkorn. Its name was "Krung Kao", in relation to the nearby Ayutthaya Historical Park. In 1921, it was rebuilt as a concrete building with metal bracing and renamed "Ayutthaya" in keeping with King Vajiravudh's national order of 1917. The name and structure remains in use today.[2]
