Attraction Details :
Another historic site related to the town’s ancient past is Wat Phra Yuen. The Ku Chang-Ku Ma Chedi (or Buddhist stupa) at the temple is surrounded in four directions by standing statues.
The Chedi itself is of the typical Thai cylinder-shape and commemorates Queen Chamthewi's war elephant – a creature crucial for a city-state’s then-military - and her son's graceful steed.
Wat Phra Yuen is open daily from 8.00 am-6.00 pm.
