Sukhothai Historical Park - Wat Mahathat

Trip Stop: 

A UNESCO World Heritage Site. In addition to building Khmer-style, corn-shaped prangs, as in Ayutthaya, Sukhothai temple craftsmen also developed their own style, known as the “Sukhothai style,” the most notable feature being one central lotus-bud chedi, surrounded by smaller bell-shaped chedis, used to house relics, such as the remains of Buddhist monks or nuns.
