Sukhothai Historical Park

The Sukhothai Historical Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It consists of a very well mantained archeological park (193 ruins over 70 square kms), documenting the architecture and art style of ancient Sukhothai, capital of the Sukhothai kingdom between the 13th and 14th centuries. It is easily toured by bike or even by foot. Sukhothai literally means "Dawn of Happiness".

Inside the rectangle of the ancient city walls, there are the ruins of the royal palace and of twenty-six temples, the biggest being Wat Mahathat. The five most famous and most visited temples in Sukhothai are Wat Mahathat, Wat Phra Phai Luang, Wat Sa Si, Wat Si Sawai and Wat Si Chum. The ruins of the building are imposing, and all of them are decorated with beautiful sculptures and reliefs (especially famous are the different statues of the Buddha). The Historical Park stands as reminder of a golden age of the Sukhothai kingdom, allowing the modern visitor to experience the greatness and the complexity of its culture as it was in full bloom.
