Much of the history of Muay Thai was lost when the Burmese captured Ayudhaya, the capital city of Siam (Thailand) in the 14th century. The Burmese looted the temples and depositories of knowledge held in the capital. Unfortunately most of the written history was lost during this period. The relatively little information that was saved is now preserved and protected as national treasures for Thai culture and heritage.
