Sukhothai Historical Park


Sukhothai Historical Park is a vast historical site covering around 70 square kilometres with 193 dilapidated buildings to explore, although the central part of the park is a smaller walled town area with a moat which covers 3.2 square kilometres. The park is open every day from 08:30 to 18:00 and there is an admission fee of 100 THB for each of five zones within the park. Because the park is so large many visitors choose to rent a bicycle to get around and there is an additional charge of 10 THB for taking a bicycle into each of the zones.

Sukhothai Historical Park contains the ruins of the capital city of what was, arguably, the forerunner of the Kingdom of Thailand. The Kingdom of Sukhothai existed as an independent state from 1238 until 1438 and controlled a significant part of what is modern day Thailand, with territory stretching as far south as Nakhon Si Thammarat. The era of the Sukhothai Kingdom is notable for its impressive artwork, including the distinctive Buddha statues with square heads and large eyes. In and amongst the temples which were founded during the era of the Sukhothai Kingdom are older temples, such as Wat Si Sawai and Wat Phra Phai Luang, which were originally built as Hindu temples when the area was under the control of the Khmer Empire
