    Naturally maintained remains of the ancient city. Few towers were under construction. At the time of visit (Nov 2016), the entrance fee was free in commemoration of King's death. No shades at all so be prepared to drink a lot of water and rest along the way.

    : It took me 9 minutes from Mahathat to this ruin. Entry 50 bath, something about this temple is the detailed carving of lotus. I climbed inside the prang and visited the crypt (not recommended for those afraid of heights)
