Wat Yai Chai Mongkon (Ayutthaya-Thailand)
This temple, also known as Wat Phra Chao Phya, is located southeast of the Ayutthaya city ruins. Its chedi definitely stands out from its surroundings with 62 meters of height and 28 tons of brick that were used to build it. Unfortunately, because of its massive size and weight, it has sunk into the ground. It is believed that the stupa of the temple was built even before Ayutthaya was founded, while king U-Thong built the monastery and dedicated it to the monks who went to study Buddhism in Ceylon. At the temple grounds, there is a huge Buddha statue in a lying position, while the other chedi was built to celebrate king Maresuan’s victory over the Burmese prince in a duel on elephants.
