Wat Jae or the Small Monastery was situated off the city island in the southern area of
Ayutthaya in Khlong Takhian sub-district along
Khlong Wat Jaeng. The temple was
situated south of
Wat Phraya Phan and west of Wat Pho Chai.

In situ is a brick mound covered in vegetation.

Its historical background and period of construction are unknown.

The monastery is mentioned on a Fine Arts Department map drafted in 1993 and
located in Geo Coord: 14° 19' 43.29" N, 100° 34' 9.94" E.

I presume the denomination on the FAD map is not correct and the monastery was
Wat Jaeng, identical to the denomination of the canal in its vicinity.
