Located outside the old walled city to the east is located Wat Chang Lom along the road to New Sukothai. The temple's distinguishing feature is a Sri Lankan style chedi decorated with sculptures of elephants. The main chedi is bell shaped with 32 elephant statues around its base, built in the 14th century

Great chedi with a beautiful base on the outer roads of the historical precinct. Ride your bike up and consider the trunks!

This temple is located behind the Legendha hotel. Just walk through the hotel gate and cross the street. Although the directions are clearly marked, it seems not to be visited by many travellers. It is a peaceful place, especially nice during sunset.

This temple was located right outside our hotel (see my review for our wonderful stay!) Very peaceful and easy to walk around!

We walked to this temple from our hotel. No entrance fee - you can just wander around. Small complex -but they've done a nice job of restoring some of the 36 white elephants statues that ring the temple. It's well worth a 20 minute visit.

A free site with only one wat, but very impressive with elephant sculptures all the way around. Nice for 15 minute to half an hour visit.

This wat is very different from the rest of the wats as there are elephants decorated, which is a respected animal. It's on a different site as well. It's in the direction of new Sukhothai but very easily navigated using the map. Cycle to this site, snap a few photos and u're gone

After seeing so many elephants up north, this was a pretty elephant statue lined temple to shoot some pics. Nice!

I really liked this temple, because of all the elephant sculptures surrounding the base. This Wat is off the main road. From the Kamphoen Hak Gate, go towards Sukhothai, turn left off of the main road, then turn right onto a dirt road then straight for about 100m. It's on the left side.

We found the place by chance as we were driving around and it was different in style and impressive with nice details. Try to visit it.
