|Wat Rang (Lit: abandoned monastery) was situated off the city island in the eastern
area of Ayutthaya in Phai Ling Sub-district.
The monastery stood south of Wat Chedi Yot Hak.
The only traces which are left is a brick mound with an open pit in the middle of the
mound, where bricks had been collected for sale and searches were done to recuperate
memorabilia of the former temple. Pieces of roof tiles were scattered over the area.
Historical data about the monastery and its construction are unknown. The site is only
mentioned on a 2007 Fine Arts Department map.
The brick mound of Wat Rang is located in geographical coordinates: 14° 20' 38.19" N,
100° 35' 51.05" E.
