Next to the Legendha Resort Hotel

Wat Chang Lom is just behind the Legendha Resort Hotel I stayed at last week. The temple is small but the chedi with the 20-something elephants a very nice place to visit.

My fiancee and I enjoyed visiting this small temple ruins. It was adjacent to our hotel, Legendha. The ruins, were the easiest to navigate, minimum steps, etc.

If you're looking for extraordinary temple, then Wat Chang Lom is the perfect place to visit. Most of the elephants are in good condition because they got renovated by Fine Art Department of Thailand. I love the fact that this temple is surrounded with many tress.

The third tier supports the bell-shaped chedi at the top. From far, it appears as if the elephants are holding up the temple.... More

We cycled pass it unexpectedly and stopped immediately because we never saw elephants on stupas?! It is sitting on its own, but very interesting indeed.
