  • A visit here should be definitely on the plan, if one is in Sukhothai. The system is well maintained and there to marvel at new around every corner. I was very glad that we had our TourGuide. So we learned a lot about the importance of the statues as well as for me completely inconsequential-looking stones insanely. Therefore, I can only recommend to find a guide here. It is insanely exciting.

  • Truly amazing. For me, it is the best part in this historical park. Not only the scenery at the sunset, the views from different angles and spots have their own great charm and beauty. Take your time here and stay until the sun goes down deep into the ground and stars appear on the sky. You will love its night view and atmosphere.
  • This is the main temple in Historical Park , have the Buddha statue in different style .
  • the place you should not miss, nice sunset scene when the sun set behind the main pagoda
  • One of the amazing places in Thailand . If u visit you need to see sukhotai old capital .
  • Ancient place for historical remembrance. No regrets visiting.
