Wat Mangkorn, Sukhothai

Wat Mangkorn
Wat Mangkorn - and my bike

This "temple of the dragon" sits in the shade of a large banyan tree. The highlight here is the glazed ceramic railing that encircles the temple. It appears to be unique in all of Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai.

Other remains include the truncated main stupa, which sits on a large platform that also has the ruins of the prayer hall and ordination hall. The ordination hall (ubosot) is still surrounded by its boundary markers, pairs of leaf-shaped stones set on brick bases.

The temple sits on a bend where the road along the base of the western hills meats the road to the western gate of the inner city.
