Attraction Details :
Known as the temple of the bodhi tree, Wat Si Chum was built in circa 13th Buddhist century. The highlight is the graceful Buddha sculpture enshrined inside the remaining structure of the square mandala building. Located 1,500 meters from the north of the Wat Mahathat, Wat Si Chum is surrounded with the long moat acting like a boundary. Parts of the temple were ruined through the test of time but the remaining structures, including the ordination hall and pagodas, can be archaeological evidences that portray the heydays of Sukhothai when it was a great kingdom.
