Spread out over several sites on both sides of the Ping river are the remains of a great number of temples built during the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya era’s.
The Wat Phra Si Iriyabot is a large temple located in a tranquil, forested setting in the Aranyik area a few hundred meters North of the old walled town. Its name translates to “temple of the four postures of the Buddha”.
The large 15th or 16th century temple is enclosed by a laterite wall. Its main structures, the imposing viharn and a mondop, are aligned on an East West axis. In front of the temple are a well and ancient bathroom facilities as well as a sala, an open pavilion used for shelter and resting.
