This is unique for the three similar chedi's housing the remains of three brothers and their families. This is another extensive complex that must have been spectacular in its day.

The three main pagodas are very picturesque, and it's a rather large site, which makes it worth the fifty baht entrance fee. Very centrally located as well.

Wat Phra Sri Sanphet was founded in the 15th century as a state temple. Later rules added the Chedis to house the remains of their ancestors. The Burmese made an end to this in 1776.
