Wat Si Chum, Sukhothai

(340+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to visit Wat Si Chum during your Sukhothai vacation using our convenient Sukhothai trip itinerary maker.

  • 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.
