Wat Chedi Sung, Sukhothai Historical Park, Sukhothai Province
East of Wat Tra Phang Thong Lang, this temple is well known for the main chedi which sits on a very high base. This circular bell-shaped chedi can be seen from Wat Tra Phang Thong Lang. The highly elevated base 14 m x 14 m with 20-redented corners is unique, and has not been found elsewhere. It is similar to a mandapa with solid walls on all sides.
This chedi is believed to here been constructed during the late Sukhothai period. Judging from the high base and other components, this ancient monument might have developed from the chedi of Wat Sa Si and the leaning stupa in Si Satchanalai.
