The Ancient Civilization of Sukhothai

Wat Sri Chum

In this huge cuboid construction sits a colossal 14.7 meters (48ft) Buddha image called Phra Atchana. The temple was built more than 700 years ago and is mainly a large square mondop building, which houses the huge image. This image was so impressive that we actually traveled back here in November 2006 with a wide angle lense and a full format digital camera in our equipment to take a whole photo session of the beautiful image. 

One temple back    One temple forward
