Wat Maha That, Sukhothai

(4.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Stroll through the impressive ruins of Wat Maha That, at one time an important royal monastery and today a World Heritage Site. Erected around 1374 CE, the complex contained enshrined relics of Buddha and was strategically situated close to the Grand Palace. It served as the seat of the Supreme Patriarch of the City Dwelling sect for many years. Today, significant remnants of the imposing monastery still stand, including brick edifices and stone sculptures, all surrounded by verdant lawns.

  • Simply beautiful and superb!! Well maintained. Many Buddha statue in Meditation pose few hundreds year old. Excellent photo opportunities. Must visit
  • Wat Mahathat is the most important temple as the principle temple of Sukhothai.
  • Must seen place when being neer by Sukhothai. You can rent a cycle and have a trip inside. Very intersting park (plan AT LEAST to spend half a day there... you won't regret it).
