“Sukhothai Historical Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

This wat is located on a hill and outside of the old Sukhothai Historical Park (SHP). It's about 20 mins easy cycle from the SHP. On top of the hill there is the the Phra Attharot Buddha of Wat Saphan Hin, the path leading to up of the hill is about 300 meters long.

From top of the hill it's a beautifull view of the park and surroundings.

There is a legend story about King Ramkamhaeng who would ride his white elephant up to Wat Saphan Hin on the full moon to pay his respects to this Buddha.
