Wat Phra Si Sanphet (วัดพระศรีสรรเพชญ์) View on the three chedi from the southeast.
The monastery’s main structures are aligned East West. At the center of the Wat Phra Si Sanphet are three large bell shaped stupas (chedis) that were once gilded, standing on an elevated platform. At each of the four cardinal directions is a porch protruding out from the structure. A niche enshrined a standing image of the Buddha. In the core of each stupa was a small chamber where the ashes of Ayutthaya Kings were enshrined.
Next to each chedi stood a mondop (mandapa), a building with a square floor plan and pyramidal roof. Today only their base remains. The mondops probably enshrined highly revered images of the Buddha.
