Wat U Mong
Not to be confused with the small Wat U Mong in the old city, this historic forest wát is famed for its sylvan setting and its ancient chedi, which rises above a brick platform wormholed with passageways, built around 1380 for the 'mad' monk Thera Jan. As you wander the arched tunnels, you can see traces of the original murals and several venerated Buddha images. The scrub forest around the platform is scattered with centuries' worth of broken Buddha images.
