This is just one of the stops in this park. This statue shows the influence of Ceylon during this period. Elephants symbolized royalty. This is from the first part of the Sukhothai period.

What is amazing about Wat Sorasak is the excellent condition of the twenty elephants holding up the stupa

While many chedi have elephants surrounding them, this particular one is considerably more attractive, which may also explain the crowds that are often encountered here.

Interersting in the elephants along the base. Another temple that stands out in the Historical Park. A photogrtaphers haven. Remember water, sunscreen and hat if wandering around historical Sukhothai seeing these many sites.

We came across this temple on our way back from Wat Si Chum. Wat Sorasak is a less known temple , yet it is worthwhile to visit. The main stupa (chedi) is surrounded by beautifully carved elephants. The grounds are immaculate.

I love the elephant base wats like this one. This is one of the many sites to see in the park so take some time to stop by this site while in the park

Two of the 13 wats we visited at the Sukhothai Historical Park, this Wat and Wat Chang Lom have elephants as bases or supporters of these wats. I think these bases made of elephant statues distinguished them from the other wats located in the Park....More

Wat Sorasak is another of the temple areas of Sukhothai Historical Park. You're already there so go have a look!

Wat Sorasak stands in between the main wat complex and Wat Si Chum. It is as if it's supported by the elephants on its base. I really like the surrounding trees with their foliage spread widely and there's a nice small lake nearby with small...More
