|Wat Jae or the Small Monastery was situated off the city island in the southern area of
Ayutthaya in Khlong Takhian sub-district along Khlong Wat Jaeng. The temple was
situated south of Wat Phraya Phan and west of Wat Pho Chai.
In situ is a brick mound covered in vegetation.
Its historical background and period of construction are unknown.
The monastery is mentioned on a Fine Arts Department map drafted in 1993 and
located in Geo Coord: 14° 19' 43.29" N, 100° 34' 9.94" E.
I presume the denomination on the FAD map is not correct and the monastery was
called Wat Jaeng, identical to the denomination of the canal in its vicinity.
