Wat Khao Suwan Khiri, Sukhothai
 This is also a hilltop temple situated 200 meters away from Phanom Phloeng Hill. A huge bell-shaped chedi on a 5-tiered base marks the center of the temple. Ruins of a viharn and chedi, and fragments of huge stucco figures lie scattered on the ground. The similarity between some figures here and those at Wat Chang Lom in the old town of Sukhothai leads to the belief that it was King Ramkhamhaeng the Great of the Sukhothai Kingdom who had this temple constructed.
