Directly south of the gate through the southern wall is Wat Chetuphon, the largest and most important of the temples south of the city. At the center of the main complex is a large brick structure which has a different Buddha image on each side. The first image you see as you approach from the east is a massive and very striking walking Buddha. This form of Buddha image is quite rare, and even though this one is missing its head, it's still very sublime.
On the reverse side of the massive structure is a more traditional standing Buddha, while there was a seated Buddha on the north and a reclining Buddha on the south. The entire complex is enclosed by a slate wall which was carved to look like wood.
