Apart from the walking Buddha, Wat Chetuphon still maintains two gems there, which is two traditional Sukhothai Buddha art. In the past, there were four Buddha facing in each of direction; north, west, east and south.

An impressive temple, even in ruins, is quite discernible as to how it once looked. Has an impressive mandapa with images of Buddha in four different positions. Two are very clear, while the other two require a little visual reconstruction.

This wat is one of the 13 wats that my tuktuk driver and I visited. It took us 5 minutes to visit it, just some columns and headless buddha. We left briefly to visit other wats of the Park.
