Elephants?!

We cycled pass it unexpectedly and stopped immediately because we never saw elephants on stupas?! It is sitting on its own, but very interesting indeed.

This is the only temple and ruins that I saw my entire time in Thailand, that had cement elephants surrounding the base, so with that, I felt pretty special about it! When I visited, I was the only person there, so I had the entire place to myself. It is very small in comparison to other places, but considering it... More

This wat was easy for us to visit because it was right behind our hotel. Still I would suggest a visit to this wat on your bike tour of sukhothai. There are two ruins here which were part of a larger building at one time.

Of the 13 wats we visited, this is one that I easily remembered. Elephants statues support the top areas of the wat. The four corners of the wat have the statues of the bigger elephants. There are no statues of Buddhas near it, just the wat!

Small but interesting ruins. The elephants are better preserved than the ones at SI Satchanalai! Enjoyable short visit.

this was right outside our hotel window. We were treated to a candlelight Buddhists ceremony one evening which really brought the site to life. A magical experience

Wat Chang Lom means in Englisch: Temple surrounded by elephants. That is thrue for sure, 32 elephants. If you are in the historical park you must vist Wat Chang Lom that is a little different from the rest.

This temple was a bit outside the main park area but it is worth going there (not very far from the amazing Wat Si Chum temple by bicycle). Most of the elephants had been renovated and are not the original sculptures but the complex still looked authentic and was quite different from the other temples. Don't miss it! I was... More
