No visit to the Sukhothai Historical Park is complete without seeing the bronze statue of the King Ram Khamhaeng. Curiously, he was not a founder of Sukhothai , yet is widely regarded as it's greatest ruler during it's most prosperous era. Apparently the sword by his side is a symbol of the State.

This monument to King Ram Khamhaeng has significance to Thais but as far as a tourist attraction, it is just another monument. The grounds surrounding the monument are well kept, and it is a nice place to take a photo but not really worth a trip just to see this, unless it has some significance to you.

Thanks to the good signage in English as well as Thai, the foreign/Thai visitor can get a feeling for the importance of this king in Thai history. A great spot to stop and rest on your bike travels around the park, albeit, not much shade; as it's an open plaza.

In the center of the park this is just a statue and more modern looking. It would not be on my list of must sees if pressed for time. Otherwise just stop my for 15?minutes while visiting he park

It was difficult to take a picture of the front view of this monument. I was waiting for the German tourists to finish their photo sessions when a big group of Thai students arrived to take their own photos. I decided to take pictures of this monument on the side and back areas. Later, when all the tourists were gone,... More

Another amazing sight to see in Sukhothai. Hire a bicycle and off you go. The earlier in the day you visit the better

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).
