Cute little island well worth a short visit. Unlike the other pagodas inside the historical park, this is an active temple in everyday use by locals. A nice and lively counterpoint.

This temple situates in the middle of water. Ancient pagoda still remains and Buddha's footprint in a small hall also. Local people always come to this place to feed fish in the lake. There are numerous catfish in huge size.

The chanting began as I approached the Wat. It was wonderful to visit and walk around this Wat. The beauty at sunset was breathtaking. The fish in the moat swim all over the place!

This temple located not far from the Historical park; within walking distance. What I love about this temple is it's in the middle of water, make it like an island.

Located near the Sukhothai Historical Park, this was the first wat my tuktuk driver and I visited. There was no visitor around, just me. There is a short bridge to cross the pond. The biggest attraction is the huge stupa. To the right side of...More
