Wat Phra Si Ratana Maha That | Sukhothai

Wat Phra Si Ratana Maha That

Wat Phra Si Ratana Maha That

"Wat Prang," as it's called by the locals, dates from the early 13th century, making it one of the oldest temples in the Si Satchanalai area. The large corn-cob prang is a strong clue that the temple was started by the Khmers, but it was expanded and modified all through the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya periods. This is perhaps the best place to start a tour of Si Satchanalai.

The temple is arranged in a linear plan running from east to west. At the eastern end is the ordination hall, a modern building built on the foundations of a much older structure. You can see the old foundation stones at the rear of the building, opposite the gate to the central complex dominated by the soaring prang.
