More Wat in Sukhothai
Before continuing, I'd like to mention that you can look at large versions of the pictures by hitting "more images" under photography on the right, then navigating your choices of the sized available.
Some of the other highlights of our stay in Sukhothai were a visit to the restored Wat Sarasak, with elephant statuary surrounding the chedi, and Wat Chang Lom, also with the stupa bordered on all sides by elephant representations, this time largely unrestored. To my eyes the elephant ravaged by time still shows elements of personality, making me wonder if its creator had a particular beast in mind or whether familiarity with both his craft and the animal had made imparting that second nature. Or whether I'm just imagining things in the romanticism of a moment in the far east.

But I’m forgetting the largest monument in the historical park, Wat Mahathat, comprised of several structures, including the very beautiful primary Buddah image, pictured below.
