This is just one of the stops in this park. This statue shows the influence of Ceylon during this period. Elephants symbolized royalty. This is from the first part of the Sukhothai period.

Interersting in the elephants along the base. Another temple that stands out in the Historical Park. A photogrtaphers haven. Remember water, sunscreen and hat if wandering around historical Sukhothai seeing these many sites.

We came across this temple on our way back from Wat Si Chum. Wat Sorasak is a less known temple , yet it is worthwhile to visit. The main stupa (chedi) is surrounded by beautifully carved elephants. The grounds are immaculate.
