This is a large historic temple complex was built in the early 13th century AD, is located to the southeast of Si Satchanalai town. The decorative stucco bearing the Bayon art style of ancient Khmer found at the main entrance of the temple point out clearly that Wat Phra Si Ratana was originally founded before Sukhothai kingdom.

One could say that there are enough wats in this area but this is a special one. It is Khmer style and you can climb up on it to have e better view of the Buddha and also have a very nice view around into the historical park. Beware though the stairs are steep and I mean it.

This temple is in Chaliang, near the Si Satchanalai Historical Park, and I think it is the best reason to make the trip here. The khmer-style phrang is beautiful, and if you don't suffer from highness-sickness (that's me, unfortunately) you can also climb it.

This stunning temple towers above the surroundings, and is a specatcular example of Khmer influence and architecture. A must-see example of a well preserved temple. Worth renting a bike to see this and other monuments at the same time.

Just brilliant!
Gave my partner and I a real insight into Thai history; the Sukhothai dynasty. It was an absolute pleasure...a dream if you like weaving around the place on a couple of bycicles. There was a particular photo we took overlooking a picturesque lake and a mini island. It was display picture material!

Hardly any queue and terrific value for what you're stepping or riding into. A must if you're hanging around Northern Thailand.

Easily accessible from New Sukhothai Bus Station (45THB). Easy walk to this temple from the drop-off point but rent a bike to get to the Historical Park. Cross the suspension bridge and the temple is in front of you. 20THB entrance fee. Lots of great photo opportunities.

The temple is stunning and well worth coming to see. You are spoilt for choice in Sukhothai but this is a "must see". It is large and you need to ensure you have time to see around it and to spend time relaxing and taking in the views around the site. Great photo opportunities.
