Wat Choeng Tha

This small ruined temple is a short walk or ride west of Wat Na Phra Men, also on the northern bank of the Lopburi river.

The main attraction is a Khmer style prang which is simlar to, but smaller than the one at Wat Phra Ram. The temple was thought to have been first constructed in the 1300s and it now has an overgrown feel, although a small active temple on-site and saffron robes wrapped around the chedi keep it from feeling totally neglected.

The wat also has a couple of small Buddha images and an info board by the entrance that lists the many names that the wat has gone by throughout its history.
