“Ancient Khmer style temple”

Ranked #20 of 36 things to do in Sukhothai
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 November 2016

The temple is large and relatively well preserved. As per the locals, this is one of the oldest temples in the area. The temple is surrounded by a wall with the gate topped by a four faced Brahma statue.

The entrance leads to a prayer hall or vihara of which only the pillars and walls survive. A seated Buddha statue is placed at the end of the prayer hall.

Past this is the high main prang of the temple in Khmer style with very steep steps leading to the top. Beyond the main prang is the base of a chedi followed by another prayer hall with a seated Buddha image at the end. To the one side of the chedi is a temple holding a standing Buddha image. The complex also has many smaller shrines and chedis in the four corners.

The temple is definitely not to be missed if you are visiting the area. Budget at least a couple of hours to enjoy it fully.

This is special Khmer style, there are stairs that you can climb to get a better view, please take care as the steps are steep, and be very careful on the way down and make sure you locate the position of the stairs. Once you have climbed up the view is very good, you can see all over the park.

One could say that there are enough wats in this area but this is a special one. It is Khmer style and you can climb up on it to have e better view of the Buddha and also have a very nice view around into the historical park. Beware though the stairs are steep and I mean it.

This temple is in Chaliang, near the Si Satchanalai Historical Park, and I think it is the best reason to make the trip here. The khmer-style phrang is beautiful, and if you don't suffer from highness-sickness (that's me, unfortunately) you can also climb it.
