This temple is much smaller, and usually quieter than the larger temples closer to the main gate, but if you take the time to go out there, you will be rewarded with a serene, calm place. This temple is built on an island with a lake around it. There is a standing Buddha statue in Mahayana style that is quite... More

The cute little standing figure it wearing a cape which is a bit different but it's largely unremarkable. OTHER TIPS FOR SUKHOTHAI - Sunscreen is essential as you will almost certainly... More

Easy to visit because it's in the main park. Pretty location & nice Buddha, as well as the smaller statue to the right of the temple.
