Set within the grounds of an extensive historical park, Wat Si Chum stands as a monument to the Sukothai Kingdom's architectural prowess and religious devotion. Pay a visit to this sprawling 14th-century mandapa, or pavilion, located in the center of the complex and surrounded by an imposing moat. Marvel at its massive 15 m (49 ft) stone wall, then wander between the columns and enter through the slit-like opening, examining the slate drawings depicting scenes of Buddha's life along the way. You'll find a stately statue of Buddha, resting cross-legged with his palm pointed upwards, inside of the temple. By using our Sukhothai road trip planning app, you can arrange your visit to Wat Si Chum and other attractions in Sukhothai.
Wat Si Chum reviews
Having visited a few historical sites in Thailand and understanding the periodic time line between different capital I must say that in SUKHOTHAI the historical sites are very different. Overall I..... more »
Wat Si Chum has One statue to offer but charges the same for Entrance fee as the Entire Historical park. Foreigners pay 5 TIMES the local rate. more »
Rent a bike and head West with respect to the Central national park of old Sukhothai. Located only 2 kilometers away from the bus stop (to the new city or wintour), you'll reach the Western park. The entry is 100 bath (+10 for the bike) and comprises two temples. The Wat Si Chum is a small temple that contains a giant surprise. Make sure to read the story written on the board before walking your way to the giant Buddha: a quiet moment of calm is awaiting you.
One of the many sites/temples in Sukhothai National Historical Park.. The statue of Buddha in the square shaped temple is breath-taking and huge.. Many representations on paintings might be inspired from Wat Si Chum Buddha statue..
