Wat Suren or the Monastery of Indra is located off Ayutthaya’s city island in the
western area in Ban Pom Sub-district. It is situated along Road #347, just next to
a small coconut factory and south of
Wat Worachet.

In situ is a brick mound with remnants of a wall and broken Buddha statues. The site is
covered in dense vegetation.

The monastery was likely surrounded by a moat and was accessed by a canal called
Khlong Klaep, which had a junction with the Chao Phraya River, north of Wat Chai

The monastery's historical background and period of construction are unknown.

The site is located in geographical coordinates: 14° 20' 47.19" N, 100° 31' 44.29" E.
