Sukhothai Historical Park

Thai name : อุทยานประวัติศาสตร์สุโขทัย

GPS : 17.01816667,99.70667000 (See on the map)


World Heritage of UNESCO, the Sukhothai Historical Park is a great testimony of the glorious past of Thailand. First capital of the country from the twelfth to the fourteenth century, Sukhothai was the first truly independent kingdom of Thailand. The park covers an area of 70m2, with nearly a hundred more or less large sites that can be visited.
Sukhothai Historical Park is divided into three separate but adjoining areas. The central area, the most visited and probably the most interesting, the North Zone with Wat Si Chum and its huge stone sitting Buddha and the West Zone, rarely visited where the most significant temple is Wat Saphan Hin and its standing Buddha.
Often visitors only go in the central sector but if you have time, go at least to see Wat Si Chum in the north sector. Its huge stone sitting Buddha is said to be the largest in Thailand. It would be a shame to come here and miss this temple!
