"Wat Si Sawai" Sukhothai Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Sukhothai Things to Do: 121 reviews and 303 photos

Wat Si Sawai is situated a few hundred metres south of Wat Mahathat. Its three prangs (imitated Hindu Shikhara Vimanas) are regarded as of considerable significance. Demarcated by a wall, the three prangs were built in the Lopburi art style. Their slender forms on low bases are decorated with stucco, some designs are similar to those on Chinese ware of the Yuan dynasty. Found in situ, a carved lintel depicting the reclining Vishnu on Ananta Naga (Anantasayana), fragments of Hindu god images and linga, all point out that this temple was originally a Hindu sanctuary and was later transformed into a Buddhist temple.
