Wat Khunsan  -  
วัดขุนแสน
 Address:
 Known as: Wat Khun Saen
 Description: This deserted temple is located on U-Thong Road, west of the Hua Ror market. Its present day boundary extends right to the base of the road. In fact, one of its chedi stops right before the pavement begins, and motor vehicles actually curve around it.
As a restored ruin, Wat Khun Saen has many of its structures remaining. Its highlight is a been expanded over the years, which creates the unique appearance of a small chedi being consumed by a larger one. The view from the chediís western side provides an idea about how these temples were sometimes expanded over preexisting structures. In situ, there is also the basic foundation of a sermon hall, which includes pieces of Buddha images and some sema stone. Portions of a wall can be seen surrounding the monastery. Traces of several small chedi can also be seen on the premises, including the one located right next to U-Thong Road. There are a number of large and interesting Bodhi tree on site.
