Wat Chang

Wat Chang : Ayutthaya, Thailand

Wat Chang or the Monastery of the Elephant was given its name due to the elephant statues that once encircled its main chedi. There is some debate on when it was originally founded. This temple is listed as being built during the reign of King Borommatrailokanat (r.1448-1488), at a time when Sukhothai was being absorbed into Ayutthaya as a vassal state.
