  • It was smaller than Wat Mahathat and Wat sa si, but there was a splendid sitting statue and smiling party Buddha. It is in the history park, but I was able to watch it slowly because there were few people.

  • Although Wat Tra Phang Ngoen is not the most well-known or nicest-looking site, its architecture is a wonder, with a mix of Sukhothai's lotus base stupas and Khmer influence. The temple is situated next to a pond, which attracts storks. This is a quiet place and certainly one of the most underrated parts of the historical park.
  • A small temple but noteworthy for having classic Sukhotai architectural styles in both the shape of the Chedi as well as the images of the Buddha statue. Firstly the spire is constructed in the lotus shaped fashion that is specifically linked to a unique Sukhotai style. The corner of the square base of the lotus bud shaped spire is made up 5 smaller corners built to symbolise the lotus leaves at the base of the bud. This temple also features a walking Buddha statue that has the same facial traits of Buddha images built during the same time period. The most distinctive feature if the Buddha images are the oval shaped faces and sharp aquiline noses. It stands as a good contrast to other temples such as Wat Sa Si that feature a more Sinhalese shaped Chedi that is bell-shaped
