Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park
Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park contains lots of temples and monument built between the 13th and 17th Centuries by the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya Kingdoms. Despite one of the best preserved collections of old temples in Thailand, with other 50 structures to explore, Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park gets relatively few visitors which in a way adds greatly to the charm of this wonderful place which you can walk or cycle around without seeing anyone else except for the occasional tourists and groups of local children who use town centre part of the park to access their school.
Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park is split into two sections, the entrances to which are several kilometres apart. There is an entrance fee of 100 THB to each of the two sections, both of which are open from 08:00 to 17:00. The most popular section is the one near the town centre which covers an area of just under 85,000 sqm. This part of the historical park is the most popular, partly because it is the easiest to get to, and partly because it is where the two most iconic temples in the park are located:
- Wat Phra That: 15th Century temple with a large central chedi and two chedis at the far end of the base of a large prayer hall.
- Wat Phra Kaew: Once home to the famous Emerald Buddha this within the ruins of this temple are three Ayutthaya era Buddha statues which are the most photographed part of the historical park.
