Wat Si Chum, Sukhothai

4.7
#3 of 18 in Sightseeing in Sukhothai
Ruin Architectural Building
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 Wat mahathat of the main Park and - this isolated in the second Park are the two most beautiful temples. Here not a cat, not as well maintained nearby and the rest are that all small remnants of temples, but this one's worth to him alone.

  • Small temple, big surprise. What a wonderfull temple this is :) got some great pictures there. Worth visiting in the morning, cause there are less visitors, so you may have it all for you ;)
  • Ive seen countless buddha statues but few come close to this magnificent statue.
  • Iconic symbol of Sukhothai with its finest early Sukhothai art. Took some ride from the new town centre, and a few walk away from the major Historic park but surely worth every single step.
  • 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.
  • A very beautiful big Budha.

Where to stay in Sukhothai

Sukhothai tourism has been growing for decades, meaning you can now find many places to stay around town, even on a budget. Most accommodations are in New Sukhothai, which lies 12 km (7.45 mi) from the historical park, but lacks many interesting sights of its own. However, good transport connections between the two cities make it easy to explore the historical city on a day trip. If you have a bit more in your budget, save yourself some traveling time by staying near the old city. Do your homework before you book, though--some of the older hotels have a reputation for being run-down and not particularly clean.
