Kamphaeng Phet was one of the significant cities during the Sukhothai kingdom. Today there are Historical Parks in Kamphaeng Phet itself, in the town of Traitrung and in the District of Nakhon Chum. Most of the monuments are temples from the Theravada Buddhism adopted from Sri Lanka. They date back to the 13th Century. Kamphaeng Phet's ancient places are not as compact as the ones in Sukhothai or Ayutthaya and they are less visited.
