Very picturesque temple in the middle of a lake

This is a lovely temple in the middle of a artificial lake with lots of lotus flowers. Perfect for nice pictures. Also has a sala in one corner where you can relax a bit.

There are two ways of admiring this Wat: close up and from the other side of the lake. It is inside of the Historical park.

Be there on the first Friday of each month. There will be a free theater and close by a foodmarket. The Buddha looks good when it is dark

Located near the King Ram Khamhaend Monument, this wat has a buddha statue seated in front of a stupa and surrounded by tall columns. A short bridge and a small pond are located near by. One of the 13 wats we visited at the Sukhothai Historical Park on March 4. 2016.

Wat Sa Si is another of the nicer areas of Sukhothai Historical Park. Be sure not to miss this one during your visit.

This pagoda is somehow blinks when compared to the close standing Wat Mahathat temple. It it were standing alone somewhere in the jungle it would be more impressive i think.

Wat Sa Si is one of the wats surrounded by a moat. It's quite close by Wat Mahathat. Certainly one of the better ones for photography in the huge Old Sukhothai.

Located close to Wat Mahathat is this beautiful temple built in the niddle of a large reservoir called Tra Phang Tra Kuan. It has a chedi in a bell shape, a vihara and the ordination hall in the middle of the reservoir., a real must to visit whilst in the park, beautiful to photograph

This little gem, also within the Sukhothai historical park and included with your entrance fee, is certainly worth looking at. The statue here is a feminine Mahayana style standing Buddha. This temple is built in the Sinhalese Sri Lankan Theravada style Buddhism. The bell shaped cheddi and feature on the statue show the level of influence Theravada Buddhism had here.
