Presentation

According to the signs in the Historic Park, the correct spelling would be "Ariyabot" but in some guides and brochures you will find the name "Iriyabot".
There is not much left of this temple, just traces of the main building from which the ground, steps, columns and that we guess was a seated Buddha remain. At the back is the most interesting part: a damaged building that housed on four sides, back to back, two sitting Buddhas from which there is almost nothing left and two standing Buddhas from which only one is almost complete. With Wat Phra Kaew statues in the another part of the Historical Park, it is the most represented image to promote Kamphaeng Phet Park. Be carefull, it is almost hidden. You will only see it by entering into the temple and going around the construction at the back. The Buddha is huge but a visitor in a hurry can easily miss it.

Practical information about Wat Phra Si Ariyabot (or Si Iriyabot)

It is located in the Historical Park area called Aranyik (or Arinyik regarding the spelling on the signs but again the spellings differ). There are two entrances, one on Ratchadamnoen 2, the entrance where the Information Center is (this is also where the bus drops you off if you ask to go to the Historical Park) or in a oblical street (GPS N16°29'51.92" E99°30'57.00"). We do not know the name of the street but it is indicated very clearly on Ratcahadomnoen 2 when you come from Kamphaneg Phet.
Entrance fee for this part of the park: 100 THB or 150 if you take a ticket for the two areas.
You can rent bikes at the entrance for 30 THB. It is also possible to enter with a vehicle, including bicycles, for a fee of 10 to 50 THB depending on the vehicle.
