Wat Sawang Arom or the "Monastery of the Enlightened State of Mind" is located off the city island along the Lopburi River in the northern area of Ayutthaya. It is situated in Suan Prik sub-district along the road leading from the Elephant Kraal towards the Asian Highway.
In situ is an old vihara and ordination hall. The vihara is rather small and has an inner and an outer wall. The outer wall has four gates with pointed ornamented arches at the cardinal points and massive (sala-like) decorated buttresses at the corners, which makes it rare. The gates have porticoes on their inner and outer sides. The inner wall is nicely decorated with lotus shaped holes to insert candles.
The temple is in use by the Buddhist clergy. Historical data about the monastery and its construction is unknown.
