Ancient City of Si Satchanalai

Wat Phra Sri Ratanamahathat

This is a large historic temple complex further downstream on the River Yom next to the village of Chalieng. The beautiful chedi there is of early 15th century Ayutthaya style. One can climb up the narrow and steep stairs to the main shrine, which we did with a bunch of school children. The monastery is still in use and is a relatively quiet place, as is the village on the other side of the river.
