Nice but small

It's tough to be just down the road from Wat Mahathat, but these 3 Kmer spires and the grounds are definitely nice enough and shouldn't be skipped.

I agree with other reviews and this is definitely one of the most beautiful and different temples you can see in the Historical Park (or even in Thailand).

One of the many beautiful places to walk round, it's included in the 100THB ticket for the rest of the historical site and was one of the best temples inside. I loved the Khmer influence, like a mini Angkor Wat in Thailand! We caught it when it was empty which gave it an amazing atmosphere, a really amazing place, wish... More

I had to patiently wait for the German tourists ahead of me to finish their picture- taking. Got to be more patient when they started negotiating with vendors selling their stuffs at the narrow entrance areas. The best feature of this attraction is the presence of 3 towers with beautiful and intricate art works. I went to the back areas... More

Amazing architecture. One of the many temples within the park, this was my favourite of all, it just had something about it.

It's included in the main area, so with the 100 baht entrance already paid you must visit! Beautifully preserved temple in Angkor style, with great sculptures and surrounding grounds. Definitely one of the most beautiful in Sukhothai

Wat Sri Sawai is not as good as many of the other temple areas of Sukhothai Historical Park but you're already there - go have a look!

If you want to see temples in Thailand without the gold and other bling but more old fashioned than you have to go to Sukhothai. One of the most Impressive Wats is Wat Sri Sawai, with so much details... Also the tree next to the temple is beautiful decorated with buddha figures,...

A ruin that was once a Hindu temple and then became a Buddhist shrine, Wat Sri Sawai is one of the more unique ruins in the Sukhothai historical park. Don't miss the tree full of Buddha statues just outside it.

Most of the remaining sites in the Historical Park have pillars, a stupa, and a generic large Buddha. The intricately carved three chedis at Sri Sawai have a different story to tell, but I sure don't know what it is. Particularly like all the miniatures placed in the gnarly roots of a tree. This Wat would make a fine stand... More
