Wat Sorasak (GPS: 17.02296, 99.70472; Thai: วัดสรศักดิ์ ) is one of the Thai Buddhist temple ruins in Sukhothai, Thailand.

What I find quite outstanding is that it has a chedi where the base has sculptures of elephants protruding out. This is similar to another Sukhothai temple ruins, Wat Chang Lom. It is also similar to the Wat Chang Lom of Si Satchanalai, except that in Si Satchanalai, almost the whole elephant body is shown, while over here, only half. Both designs may have been derived from Sri Lanka, particularly the Ruwanweliseya Dagoba of Anuradhapura.
