There a loads of little wats dotted around in the Historical park, and this is one of them. We did not linger long as there are plenty of others to see.

Another of the many sites. Each one is unique so do take the time to see the more detailed sites. Just look at the trip advisor reviews to prioritize and see the pictures too, I would suggest a full day in the park and area.

... and perfect background for pictures! The old stones and sculptures look great in morning sun. Take water with you while doing a trip around - if sun rises it's getting quite warm between these stones. All in all: A must to see.

The small statue of Buddha walking (not seated or standing straight) is the main attraction of this wat. Located near it is a small body of water. Enjoy your visit!

This is one of the many wats in the historical park of Sukhothai. This temple with the walking buddha is beautiful so as the rest of the temples.

Wat Trapang Ngoen is a small wat with a statue of a walking buddha. In front of it is another wat on a small island in the middle of a moat. This whole section lies 'behind' the Wat Mahathat.

This temple is much smaller, and usually quieter than the larger temples closer to the main gate, but if you take the time to go out there, you will be rewarded with a serene, calm place. This temple is built on an island with a lake around it. There is a standing Buddha statue in Mahayana style that is quite... More

Wat Trapang Ngoen, imo it is the lesser visit Wat within the main zone of Sukhothai Historical Park because of its location and not well-known as Wat Mahathat and Wat Si Sawai.
