Wat Chang Lom is Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo Si Satchanalai (meaning temple with seven rows of chedis) which dates back to the 15th century and was constructed to hold the remains of the ruling families. The main chedi is topped with a lotus bud which is distinctively Sukothai in style. A smaller chedi in front has a niche with a meditating Buddha image atop a coiled naga (great snake).
The meditating Buddha sits protected by the holy naga.
