Wat Chong Klom  
โบราณสถานวัดจงกลม  
 Address:        
 Known as:   Wat Jong Krom    
 Description:   Wat Jong Krom is today only a restored ruin located off the city island in the northern
area of Ayutthaya in Khlong Sra Bua district.
The name of the monastery likely refers to a meditation technique, namely walking
meditation.
The site features a chedi, a vihara, an ubosot and different satellite chedi, all surrounded
by a wall. The ground plan of the monastery is a bit uncommon. In olden times it was the
rule that in addition of a stupa (phra prang or phra chedi), there was a vihara. Stupa and
vihara - in the simplest design - stood in the same main longitudinal axis. Often a chedi
was first built as a memorial, indicating the exact spot at which the event took place in
whose memory the temple was established. As we find here the ordination hall (ubosot)
not in the main axis, the ubosot was presumably built at a later stage.
