Lovely royal statue

The king who apparently established the Thai alphabet is commemorated in this fine statue. People still come to pay their respects.

A monument to a King who was (and appears to still be) greatly revered. Honored by having a statue of him made, so that continual thanksgiving can be offered.

If you visit Sukhothai, please go worship King Ram Khamhaeng Monument because he is one of the most respectful king of Thailand. He created Thai alphabet and during his reigned he ruled the country by paternalism. He also made the first stone inscription.

The monument is near the entrance of Sukhothai Historical Park. Every year the people of Sukhothai celebrate his birthday. I was lucky enough to be at the historical park at one of those events.

No visit to the Sukhothai Historical Park is complete without seeing the bronze statue of the King Ram Khamhaeng. Curiously, he was not a founder of Sukhothai , yet is widely regarded as it's greatest ruler during it's most prosperous era. Apparently the sword by his side is a symbol of the State.

For some bizarre reason, the monument is enlarged by quite a bit on the map they handed me in the park. So understandably, I was quite disappointed when I found it. There is a little shop just near by so we had some ice cream.

This monument to King Ram Khamhaeng has significance to Thais but as far as a tourist attraction, it is just another monument. The grounds surrounding the monument are well kept, and it is a nice place to take a photo but not really worth a trip just to see this, unless it has some significance to you.

Thanks to the good signage in English as well as Thai, the foreign/Thai visitor can get a feeling for the importance of this king in Thai history. A great spot to stop and rest on your bike travels around the park, albeit, not much shade; as it's an open plaza.

In the center of the park this is just a statue and more modern looking. It would not be on my list of must sees if pressed for time. Otherwise just stop my for 15?minutes while visiting he park

It was difficult to take a picture of the front view of this monument. I was waiting for the German tourists to finish their photo sessions when a big group of Thai students arrived to take their own photos. I decided to take pictures of this monument on the side and back areas. Later, when all the tourists were gone,... More
