This temple was different from the others, in that there was representation of each type of Buddha - standing, walking, sitting, reclining. Worth the trip to see it. Across from this temple, is also Wat Chedi Si Hong, which is fun too. I liked the animal statues on the base of the temple.

Wat Chetuphon is nice but not so great. Wat Chedi Si Hong is more beautiful, and his relief shows very nice depictions of dresses and decorations. Most of all, come here by bicycle from Old Sukhothai: the road is good and quiet and you can admire the country scape and look for storks and herons.
