This is one of the best ruins within Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park. I like this park because it is quieter than the more famous Sukhothai Historical Park. This park is set in the forest, with many trees and other natural beauty. It has a lot of shade so you don't get as hot as many of the other parks. Not crowded, so you aren't distracted by other people. All in all, a great place to relax and enjoy peacefulness.

This picturesque ruin is one of the most appealing remains at Kamphaeng Phet, a Sukothai satellite city which is included as part of the Sukothai World Heritage City. This town is little-visited by tourists but it has a wonderfully sleepy upcountry feel and we highly recommend a day or two here, if you want to see Thailand away from the tourist razzamatazz.

At Wat Phra Si Ariyabot, you can find the ruins of a temple and monastery. The monastery remains feature walls and cells for monks, but they are only of passing interest. There are several laterite mondops (a kind of bricked in enclosure, walled in on three out of four sides), which once featured the Buddha in four different postures. Today only one of the figures remains. This figure, an original Sukothai standing Buddha, dating back some 600 years is the highlight of a visit here, and a must-see for anyone on a trip to Kamphaeng Phet.

Not a big area but the uniqueness exists. It shows the beautiful buddha images on four sides differently: standing, reclining, sitting, walking.

It is a large national park. so it is useful to rent a bike at the guard. Nice to see how kampheang phet was rich in the past. Certainly effortless and certainly no less beautiful than Ayutthaya and Sukhothai

We liked the description (in English) of what this Wat looked like in the 14th - 16th century. Walk to the back of the Wat to see the huge standing buddha.

Very nice historic sites. You need to explore on foot so prepare comfortable shoes. There is a QR quote in every interesting place so bring your mobile phone with you.

The main historical park is the place to visit first, but the standing Buddha here is worth the trip (car or bicycle) from the park and is near the restaurants overlooking the river.
