In the grounds of Wat Visounarath, is ths stupa of That Makmo which, in the way of transliteration can be rendered Tad Mak Mo, That Mak Mo etc. It dates from 1504 and was constructed on the orders of Queen Visounalat (again various spellings), and is in the Sinhalese style.
Apparently, it is called the melon stupa because the local people think it resembles the shape of that fruit, but I am not entirely convinced myself.
It is open from 0800-1700 daily, and the joint admission ticket to it and the wat is 20,000 kip for foreigners.
Directions: At the junction of Vat Visounnarath road and the road leading to Ban Aphay.
