Wat Maheyong, Ayutthaya

Three Buddha images in the Ubosoth at Wat Maheyong, Ayutthaya

 

Wat Maheyong was built during the reign of King Borom Ratchathirat II (1424-1448 A.D.). The temple compound housed a huge ubosoth. The temple was renovated in 1709 by King Tai Sa.

Behind the Ubosoth is the Chedi Chang Lom. This is a bell shaped chedi on top of a square base. The base itself is decorated with elephant figures. This design is reminiscent of Chedi Chang Lom in Sukhothai, which has similar elephant decorations.
