WAT KHOK 1 (วัดโคก)
Wat Khok or the Monastery of the Mound was located on the city island of Ayutthaya
outside the
Historical Park in Pratu Chai sub-district, just opposite Hua Laem or the
"sharp headland".

The temple was situated north of a former canal called
Khlong Fang, and close to its
mouth and water gate connecting, with the present
Chao Phraya River. Wat Sing
stood south of the temple, while
Wat Tuek stood on its north-east. Wat Khok stood
behind the
Sat Kop Fortress.

There are no traces anymore of the former monastery.

Historical data about the monastery and its construction are unknown.

The site is indicated on a
mid-19th century map in an identical position as on Phraya
Boran Rachathanin's map drafted in 1926. [1]

Wat Khok must have been approximately located in Geo Coord: 14° 21' 23.72" N,
100° 32' 59.06" E.
