  Wat Phra Phai Luang

 

Thailand

The remnants of Wat Phra Phai Luang in Sukhothai, a large and important temple complex in the northern section of the Historical Park, which was presumably constructed during the reign of Jayavarman VII, who ruled from 1181 to 1219 AD.

 

The complex is surrounded by a moat and features three Khmer-style prangs, of which today only one is still mostly intact (fig.), while of the other two only the base remains.
