Wat Chedi Si Hong, Sukhothai Province
100 metres to the east of Wat Chetuphon, this temple consists of a vihara, the main chedi and subordinate chedis. Stucco reliefs around the base of the main chedi depict men and women in different attire with ornaments. Their hands hold vessels with flora, symbolizing fertility and prosperity. Decorative stucco also includes elephant and lion (simha) images. The human images already mentioned may refer to Manusayanaga, who according to beliefs in Sri Lanka, is a divine being in the underground world.
The main bell-shaped chedi was repaired several times. At present, the upper part of chedi is in ruins; only the superimposed mouldings which fell still remain on the base.
