The monastery constructed in the reign of King U-Thong is located outside the city to the southeast in the same direction as the railway station; one can see its large pagoda from far away. King Naresuan the Great commanded that the pagoda be build to celebrate the victory of his single handed combat on the elephant bank.
He also intended a huge construction to match the large pagoda of Wat Phukhao Thong and named it “Phra Chedi Chaiyamongkon”.
