Wat Khao Suwankhiri, Si Satchanalai Historical Park, Sukhothai
This temple was also built on top of a hill. This hill, Khao Suwankhiri, is just west of Khao Phanom Phloeng. The main buildings of this temple are a chedi of Sri Lankan style and a vihara. Subordinate chedis and vihara are also found here.
This monastery is also a hilltop temple situated 200 meters away from Phanom Phloeng Hill. A huge bellshaped chedi on 5-tiered base marks the center of the Wat. Ruins of vihara and chedi and fragments of huge stucco ligures lie scattered on the ground. The similarity between som figures here and those at Wat Chang Lom in the old town of Sukhothai leads to the belief that it was King Ramkhamhaeng the Great of Sukhothai Kingdom who had this temple constructed.
