Those Chedis were some of the few, which were not destroyed when the Burmese invaded the Siamese capital in 1767. The temple was the residence of the Ayutthaya monarchs. Wat Phra Sri Sanphet was the temple in the Grand Palace, just like  the Temple of the Emerald Buddha is in today's Royal Palace in Bangkok.  The temple was built in 1492 with two Chedis, containing the relics of royal family members and Kings.
