History of Phitsanulok

Phitsanulok is Thailand’s oldest continuously inhabited town and it played an important part in the history of the formation of the modern Thai state with local residents engaged in heavy fighting with Burmese military forces who at one time occupied large parts of Thailand. Unfortunately much of the historic town centre, largely consisting of wooden buildings, burnt down in 1957 and the city was rebuilt in concrete and lost much of its charm.

Wat Phra Sri Rattana Mahathat

The main tourist attraction in the city is Wat Phra Sri Rattana Mahathat which was founded in 1357. Wat Phra Sri Rattana Mahathat covers an area of over 57,000 sqm and features a golden Buddha statue which is important to Thai Buddhists, an impressive temple entrance and a large Khmer style prang. The city is also well known for its house boats, a few of which still remain on the banks of the Nan River which runs through the city.
