Located on the crest of a hill that rises about 200m above the plain, the name of the wát, which means ‘stone bridge’, is a reference to the slate path and staircase that leads up to the temple, which are still in place.

All that remains of the original temple are a few chedi and the ruined wí·hăhn, consisting of two rows of laterite columns flanking a 12.5m-high standing Buddha image on a brick terrace. The site is 3km west of the former city wall and gives a good view of the Sukhothai ruins to the southeast and the mountains to the north and south.
