Wat Si Sawai is located `remotely' to the western side of the Sukhothai Historical Park, the UNESCO World Heritage site. You can miss this temple as it is not centrally located like Wat Mahathat. You can see most visitors concentrated around Wat Mahathat area leaving Wat Si Sawai isolated and remotely quiet. When I was at the temple, there were... More

If you visited Angkor Wat, then Wat Si Sawai is the miniature version of Angkor Wat. Please note that it is called Wat Si Sawai, instead of Wat Sri Sawai. This is the only wat within Sukhothai Historical Park that constructed with Hinduism influential, which is similar to Angkor Wat. Wat Si Sawai located within the same zone with Wat... More

Situated within the UNESCO World Heritage part, a unique medieval Indian inspired archaeological site. Bicycles and audio guide available and the best way to visit it. 5 minutes from Wat Mahathat, the star attraction in Sukhothai.

We entered this site from the back. As we walked around the wat was lovely to see the pond at the back and several colourful flowering trees. The wat itself is almost intact, minus the roof.

This is a very rare thing in Sukhotai a well preserved Khmer temple which only later has been converted to a buddistic one. So a totally different architecture and no large Budhha inside make for a nice rest in between all the buddhistic temples. Nice architectural details and have a look at the decoration, there are interesting surpirses to be... More

Spelled Wat Si Sawai in the Thai Historical Park brochure, this temple complex is relatively small, however, it is included in the admission price to the Sukhothai Historical Park and it is one of the better "sub" temples around Wat Mahathat. Once you have paid your admission you are going to want to make sure you stop to see this... More

Tip: There are buses that leave you in the ruins for 30B (supposedly children pay less). tuk tuk drivers try to rip you off. We couldn't visit it inside because it was raining a lot and it wasn't clear if we could enter there. From outside it looks impressive and very well preserved.

This temple is a bit different in style than Wat Mahathat and in better overall shape. The three towers are still standing upright and are surrounded by water. Huge trees adjacent to the temple provide relief from the sun and are great photo spots as well. When visiting the park, you should definitely stop here and let the marvels of... More
