One of the great Sukhothai temples, really close to the first one. You can go there by bikes, it's not very far. Looks very old and ruined

It's one of the biggest temples in the Historical park/ It's really beautiful and old, looks like it's going to fall. It's located in the central zone of the park, you cannot miss it.

Made me realize Khmer architecture is the one I prefer for Wats. Not so impressive at first sight but full of atmosphere. Don't miss the offerings under the tree on its right.

It's located a about 5 minutes drive to the left direction of the main historical point of Sukhothai Historical Park. Entrance Fee is included with Sukhothai Historical Park. Many nice green old trees just live around. The brown color just makes different among those greens. It would be nice to ride with the bicycle in the evening time, escape the... More

It is built in and old Hindu style, Si Sawai is on the extrema left from the entrance. Do go there. The architecture is worth the visit.

This temple lies just south of Wat Mahathat. It is obviously Hindu in origin, in sharp contrast to the many Buddhist temples. And yet, in the midst of the public conversion to Buddhism, this temple was allowed to remain.

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
