Wat Si Chum, Sukhothai
(4.7/5 based on 280+ 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. Plan to visit Wat Si Chum during your Sukhothai vacation using our convenient Sukhothai trip itinerary maker.

  • That measure in the historical Park. There are at pay homage to him, big. The highlight is the right tool. Walking out to Davenport if Spartan inside and then shade. Not hot. Front entrance has a gift shop selling woven wood Barb Gao after the magnet.

  • A beautiful big Buddha. Is in a narrow building, so that the photograph is not so easy. Is part of the vast complex of Sukhothai, is located slightly away from the main Park. Should you want to visit. Many were there with the bike on the road.

  • It was truly a humbling experience to witness the magnificence of this giant Buddha statue. Place is serene and calm, and is great for anyone seeking inner peace.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful historical temple.... but i think good time to visit is at morning .....
  • 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)
  • The Mondop Wat Sri Chum houses the tallest sitting Buddha Image in the ancient Simamese Capital Sukothai.
