Photo of Wat Chana Songkhram

Originally known as Wat Ratchaburana, the monastery’s name was changed to Victory Temple at some point, though it’s not known exactly which victory prompted the switch. The central feature is a Sri Lankan-style bell-shaped chedi with an imposing stature of the sort that might honour a great military victory.

Placed around the main chedi are several smaller chedis with undulating rivets that recede in size towards the top. These resemble some of the chedis found at Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo in Si Satchanalai but are otherwise unique in Sukhothai.

Otherwise the small complex has typical remains of a wihaan and several trees. From here you could walk 100 metres north to the King Ramkamhaeng Monument, where Thais leave offerings before a larger-than-life statue of this highly revered Sukhothai king.
