Across from Wat Phra Mahathat is Wat Ratchaburana, its Khmer-style prang dominating the skyline. King Borommaracha II (Chao Sam Phraya) built this temple in 1424 to commemorate the death of his two older brothers, whose duel for the throne ironically left their younger brother as king. Their relics, including their swords, were buried in a crypt directly under the base of the prang, which was looted in 1957. Arrests were made, however, and the retrieved treasures can now
be seen in the Chao Sam Phraya National Museum.
