WAT KRADOK (วัดกระโดก)
Wat Kradok or the Monastery of the Waver was located off the city island in the
eastern area of Ayutthaya in Khlong Suan Phlu Sub-district.
Wat Phra Non and Wat Chumphon were situated on its western side, while Wat Bot
Daeng and Wat Rang stood in the east.

The three monasteries could be accessed by the canals
Khlong Suan Phlu, Khlong Dusit
Khlong Wat Phra Non. Khlong Wat Pra Non passed south of the monasteries.

The site is completely covered in vegetation. In situ is a brick mound with the remains of
multiple monastic structures. A commemoration vihara displaying a number of Buddha
images has been built on top of the mound.

Historical data about the monastery and its construction is unknown.

The site is indicated on a 1973 and 1994 Fine Arts Department map. Some remains of
the temple were excavated by the Fine Arts Department (FAD) in geographical
coordinates: 14° 20' 26.51" N, 100° 35' 24.62" E.
