Wat Si Rattana Mahathat (Wat Yai) ~ Ancient Cloisters With Phra Attharot (Part 3/3).

Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat first constructions of the cloisters were started in 1357. After you have visited the Phra Puttha Cinnaraj image, don’t forget to walk around to the back to see this ancient site of Wat Si Rattana Mahathat with standing Phra Buddha (Phra Attharot) with a Prang (chedi) behind it and enshrines relics of the Phra Buddha. The corncob shaped top of the Prang in gold color contains 4 rows of niches enshrining images of the Buddha. In contrast to the main hall, this area was deserted.
