Situated to the northwest of Wat Mahathat, this ancient edifice is beautifully located in the middle of a large reservoir known as Tra Phang Tra Kuan. Its important buildings include a chedi in a bell shape, a vihara and the ordination hall in the middle of the reservoir. The bell shaped stupa serves as historical evidence of the diffusion of Sinhalese Buddhism in Sukhothai. This stupa is sometimes known as the chedi in the Sri Lankan shape. According to the inscription on a golden plate, it is believed that the relic of Phra Maha Dharmaraja Li Thai has been enshrined in this stupa.
