Other than Wat Mahathat this is the other of my 2 "must see" things in Sukhothai. Very impressive even for someone like me who usually isn´t too much into these attractions (temples, ruins etc). Highly recommended!

This wat differs somewhat from the others for its style and shape is not to be found in other wats in the park.

It was busy with building traffic when i went to see it but it was still worth it. You need a bicycle or car to get there but you wont regret it.

I thought this buddha was delightful peering out from the building. On closer inspection you can see how beautiful the fingers are and serene the facial features.
