The Sukhothai Park is quite extensive. The south site is located outside the Royal City. You can get there by bike or tuk-tuk. The temple is nice and it has a lovely pond and sculptures of large Buddha in the 4 sides of the mandapa....More

I feel this is the highlight of the tour as it is very large and lots of the statues and building are still there. Taking a bike tour is the best way to get around and this temple deserves at least 30 mins to enjoy...More

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.

You can see how the figure was built, and while the walking Buddha is the only clear one remaining you can see from the outlines which the others were (sitting, standing, reclining). Also interesting mortise and tenon cut slabs of rock wall.

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.

Wat Chetuphon is about 2km from the side exit of the main section of Old Sukhothai. You will take the road into the country side where the wat is on your right. The place is quite ruined but has some interesting aspects. If you walk...More
