The monument won't mean much to most foreign visitors, but King Ramkhamhaeng was an important individual in Thai history. He was king of Sukhothai in the latter part of the 13th century. The monument is prominently located within the man section of the Sukhothai Historical Park. Not much to see, but the history connected to the man is what's relevant. For better or worse, King Ramhamhaeng introduced the Thai alphabet.

King Ramkamhaeng ruled Sukothai between 1279 to 1298, he was not the founder of Sukothai, but is widely recorded as its greatest ruler. He is credited with inventing the Thai alphabet by adapting a Khmer script that was derived from the Devanagari written language. The monument made of bronze was erected in 1971, it is larger than life size and shows the king sitting on the Managkhasila Asana throne with the Sword of Victory by his side

There is a big pond in front of the monument. There is no trees in the compound therefore it gets very hot under the sun.

I´ve seen quite a few locals visit the monument for prayers. This makes this quiet place quite an interesting monument to come to, to sit down and watch. I enjoyed it.

If you visit Sukhothai, please go worship King Ram Khamhaeng Monument because he is one of the most respectful king of Thailand. He created Thai alphabet and during his reigned he ruled the country by paternalism. He also made the first stone inscription.

A nice piece of art and historically interesting for those who care, but they should have built it just outside the Historical Park. It simply does not belong next to all the antiquities. The more they gussy the place up for tourists, the more they reduce their own atmospherics.

If you are visiting the historical park then stop here a minute. Learn about this king from your books or guide and take out a 20 THB note. You will see the back of the note is actually representing this sculpture exactly!
I was delighted to discover this with our cycling your guide Jib (Sukhothai by
Bicycle tour).

King Ramkhamhaeng ruled fairly and with generosity to his people. It is less than described as monarch as father of the great Thai family. So could any citizen who had legitimate concerns, come to the palace and a bell specially furnished sounded to obtain an audience with the King. Ramkhamhaeng was very religious, and the people to follow his example, regularly attend a sermon. The so-called Silacharuek Sukhothai (stone inscriptions of the Kingdom of Sukhothai), hundreds of stone steles, on which the region's history was recorded. One of the main inscriptions is the Silacharuek Pho Khun Ramkhamhaeng (stone inscription of King Ramkamhaeng). King Ramkhamhaeng had here the first still used Thai alphabet recorded, which had been formed from writings of Mon and the Khmer. The exhibited stone here is a copy, as well as the bell left the statue.
