Sukhothai Historical Park

Cradle of Thai culture

Sukhothai Historical Park

Dawn of Happiness

Sukhothai Historical Park is a reminder of the time when Sukhothai was the capital of the kingdom of Sukhothai, in the golden age of Thai history when wealth was invested in building magnificent temples. Inside the walled park you will find beautiful remains of the royal palace and of no less than 26 temples. It is perhaps the most impressive temple complex in the country, and is included in the UNESCOWorld Heritage List.

The largest and most important temple within the complex is Wat Mahathat which, thanks to the mirrored pond full of lilies in the foreground, the surrounding palm trees and the green hills in the background, is a beautiful sight. But also outside the walls are the most beautiful remains of temples. In many of them you can still clearly recognize the building style of the Kmer, similar to Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

Grab the bike to see the impressive ruins in the foreseeable future, preferably in the early morning for the many tourists. Or take the crowds for granted and wait until a golden glow falls over the ruins at sunset, an enchantingly beautiful picture...
