While many chedi have elephants surrounding them, this particular one is considerably more attractive, which may also explain the crowds that are often encountered here.

The temple is fairly simple and consists of a bell shaped chedi on a high base decorated with elephant statues on the sides. From far it appears as if the base is held up by the elephants. The temple is in surprisingly good condition and is worth a short stop as part of a visit to Sukhothai.

Interersting in the elephants along the base. Another temple that stands out in the Historical Park. A photogrtaphers haven. Remember water, sunscreen and hat if wandering around historical Sukhothai seeing these many sites.

We came across this temple on our way back from Wat Si Chum. Wat Sorasak is a less known temple , yet it is worthwhile to visit. The main stupa (chedi) is surrounded by beautifully carved elephants. The grounds are immaculate.

I love the elephant base wats like this one. This is one of the many sites to see in the park so take some time to stop by this site while in the park

Two of the 13 wats we visited at the Sukhothai Historical Park, this Wat and Wat Chang Lom have elephants as bases or supporters of these wats. I think these bases made of elephant statues distinguished them from the other wats located in the Park. No buddha statues or tall columns at all!

Wat Sorasak is another of the temple areas of Sukhothai Historical Park. You're already there so go have a look!

Wat Sorasak stands in between the main wat complex and Wat Si Chum. It is as if it's supported by the elephants on its base. I really like the surrounding trees with their foliage spread widely and there's a nice small lake nearby with small flowers.

Nice temple to walk around in Historical Park and enjoy looking at all the statues of elephants along the wall.

You might be right - there are hundreds if not thousands of temples accross Thailand and quite a lot of them are very similar. We have tried to find out differences among some of them and gave up as we came to the conclusion that every temple must have (had) something special ... We liked this temple because of the... More
