Wat Chang Rawp temple
This temple is especially interesting for its main chedi and the 68 elephants statues supporting it.Most of them are severly damaged but. Sometimes you can also see between the elephants small parts of a vegetal fresco. In front of the chedi stand the remains of another building, probably the wihaan.
The temple is less well preserved than Wat Chang Lom in Si Satchanalai which also have a chdi with elephants statues. But Wat Chang Rawp remains one of the temples to see in the Ariniyk Area of Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park.

How to get to Wat Chang Rop ?

Personally, I came to this part of the park with a bicycle that I rented from a guesthouse but otherwise you can see to go there with a tuk-tuk. You can easily find some near the market.
