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

I visited this Wat during evening, I am the only one at the temple and I found it is very peaceful where you can listen to all the... More

There is really nothing noteworthy about this temple ruin, other than the fact it is included with admission to the Sukhothai Historical Park so you may as well take a look at it as you walk by.

Wat Trapang Ngoen is the next Wat after Wat Si Sawai, opposite the lake and it houses a smaller Buddha on the top of the shrine and a Peaceful Sitting Buddha at the Ruins of the Wat.

It's nothing noteworthy as it is a smaller scale of Wat Mahathat but it is located in the central zone but so will pass it without remembering doing so. 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.
