King Naresuan the Great commanded that the pagoda be built to celebrate the victory of his single-handed combat on the elephant back. He also intended a huge construction to match the large pagoda of Wat Phukhao Thong, and named it “Phra Chedi Chaiyamongkhon”.
 
It is open everyday from 8.00 a.m.-6.00 p.m. Admission fee is 20 baht. For more information Tel: 0 3524 4193.
