This temple is famous in finest stucco depicted about Buddha's life.These stucco decorated on niches of Mondop.The most beautiful one located on the Southern niche of mondop depicted about Buddha descending from Tavatimsa(the second heaven) after visiting his mother there. Both of his side have Indra God, Brahmin God and a group of gods to farewell. This stucco counted as the master piece of Sukhothai stucco. On the West depicted about Buddha preaching his father and King in Sakya family. On the North depicted about Buddha crueling the Nalakiri elephant.But the South and the West destroyed.

Directions: Opposite Chang Lom temple, East of city moat.
