You can see how the figure was built, and while the walking Buddha is the only clear one remaining you can see from the outlines which the others were (sitting, standing, reclining). Also interesting mortise and tenon cut slabs of rock wall.

This wat is one of the 13 wats that my tuktuk driver and I visited. It took us 5 minutes to visit it, just some columns and headless buddha.

We left briefly to visit other wats of the Park.

Wat Chetuphon is about 2km from the side exit of the main section of Old Sukhothai. You will take the road into the country side where the wat is on your right. The place is quite ruined but has some interesting aspects. If you walk by the left side, you will observe stones pillar cut with small square box jutting out so that it will be placed into square recesses on the base of the side walls. It's amazing how the ancient ones cut these huge stone pillars and then place them one by one around the wat.

Located to the south of the walled city, accessible through Namo Gate lies Wat Chetuphon, the largest and most important temple in the south of the city. The brick structure at the center of the main complex has a different Buddha image on each side. The first image you see is a large walking Buddha, this form of Buddha is very rare, sadly this one is missing its head. The other images are more traditional, sitting, reclining and standing Buddhas, the entire complex is enclosed by a wall which was carved to look like wood.Sadly there is no evidence to show when this temple was constructed
