 Wat Chang Rop

Wat Chang Rop

Our favourite temple in this district, Wat Chang Rop, was the only temple where we also met tourists. I guess it is also the more photogenic temple of the park. Located on the highest point of the hill, Wat Chang Rop's square base is decorated with a total of 68 elephants. Steep staircases on each of the four sides lead up to a platform, where remains of a bell-shaped Chedi stand. In the front of the temple is a large laterite pond, now overgrown with large trees. Between the pond and the base of the Chedi was the Viharn, which is mostly gone now, including the Buddha image.
