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

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
