This temple is behind the royal palace inside the city wall to the west. According to Ayutthaya annals, the temple was built by King Eakathosarot around 1593, the year King Naresuan died while leading an army to attack King Tong-U in Burma. In honour of his elder brother, King Eakathosarot built a mighty crematorium here and some 10,000 monks were invited to the royal cremation. The main ancient shrine of the temple is a large brick and mortar Sukhothai-style bell shaped chedi. Inside the temple wall are many buildings used for religious ceremonies.
