574 TH - Historic Town of Sukhothai and Associated Historic Towns (1991)

Brief Description

"Sukhothai was the capital of the first Kingdom of Siam in the 13th and 14th centuries. It has a number of fine monuments, illustrating the beginnings of Thai architecture. The great civilization which evolved in the Kingdom of Sukhothai absorbed numerous influences and ancient local traditions; the rapid assimilation of all these elements forged what is known as the 'Sukhothai style'."

  1. Sukhothai is worth a visit, full of magnificent temples and in a very beautiful environment. I specially liked the quieter park of Si Satchanalai, a few km from there. You cee all my pictures of both parks here:
