Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Set within the grounds of an extensive historical park, Wat Si Chum stands as a monument to the Sukothai Kingdom's architectural prowess and religious devotion. Pay a visit to this sprawling 14th-century mandapa, or pavilion, located in the center of the complex and surrounded by an imposing moat. Marvel at its massive 15 m (49 ft) stone wall, then wander between the columns and enter through the slit-like opening, examining the slate drawings depicting scenes of Buddha's life along the way. You'll find a stately statue of Buddha, resting cross-legged with his palm pointed upwards, inside of the temple.

  • The enormous buddha statue has the most amazing golden hands I have ever seeen, graceful, inviting and all-serene. I didn't want to leave 
  • Wat SI CHUM is located outside the historical Park and is easy to visit by bike or a tuk tuk. Visit the best in the morning, then the Buddha figure in the sunlight. The Buddha around is a fairly narrow building, what not easier photograph that makes. Occurs 100 Bhat.

  • The moment I stepped down from the car and looked at the Buddha, I was amazed by the beauty of the Buddha. I am quite familiar with Buddha statues but this one is the most beautiful one.
  • Very big buddha statue in Meditation pose. Calm posture. Worth visit. We have to take a separate ticket for this of 100 Baht for each . (other than sukhothai historical Park ticket)
  • Very beautiful temple. Worth visiting and can come by bike.
  • The Mondop Wat Sri Chum houses the tallest sitting Buddha Image in the ancient Simamese Capital Sukothai.
