Thailands Sukhothai and its neighboring historical and cultural city sites are located 300 kilometers north of Bangkok and are one of the most striking architectural sites in the world. It was the capital of the country in the 13th and 15th centuries, and its entire history is the beginning of Thai history. In 1238, two Thai generals, Kunbang Steel Pottery and Khunpaman, succeeded in independence and established the Sukhothai Dynasty. Kunbang Steel Potter was established as King Sri Intrati's and became the first Thai King. Although several Thai dynasties were established in the same period, Sukhothai was still regarded as the first dynasty in Thailand and had an important influence on Thai culture. It witnessed the spread of Thai people to the Chao Phraya River Basin and the development of Buddhism as an important national religion. Today, many Thai paintings, sculptures and buildings still have the shadow of the former Sukhothai. There are many relics of Sukhothai, and there are many temples, pagodas and palaces in the relic park. The building is quite grand and its design is often breathtaking. Since the Thai people believe in Buddhism, the statue of the Buddha can be seen everywhere in the park. Some are ruined, but they are not solemn. Due to the wide range of parks, if you want to carry out detailed excursions, the most labor-saving way is to rent a bicycle at the entrance of the old city and explore the secrets one by one. In addition to the Sukhothai Heritage Park, there are also many temples built during the Sukhothai dynasty. Among them, the Seventh Pagoda Temple and the Xianglong Temple are more distinctive.

The last temple we visited in Dacheng is the Mahathat Temple, which is one of the oldest temples in the great city. The typical Khmer style, the overall style is similar to Angkor Wat, if you have been to Wu You will definitely have a little familiarity with the brothers, but it is basically destroyed. The most famous of the Mahatai Temple is this landmark, the tree holds the Buddha's head, and even becomes an official propaganda of Dacheng Tourism. In many magazines or Raiders books, the introduction of Dacheng is based on this picture. So many peoples first impression of the big city is that this tree holds the Buddhas head. In the past Thailand-Burma war, many Buddha statues were destroyed. The Buddha head and the Buddha body were also separated and separated. This fallen Buddha head just fell by the Bodhi tree and was not taken away by the Burmese army. The transformation, the Buddha head and the Bodhi tree merge into one, the closed Buddha's head is also respectable, giving people the power of the soul, which has become one of the seven wonders of Thailand. It should be noted that the Buddha statue is a holy god. In the Buddhist culture of Thailand, the head of the person cannot be higher than the head of the Buddha. Therefore, when posing with the Buddha head, it is necessary to leave the body and work at the scene. The staff supervises you. Entering this temple is not allowed to eat, so just a large cup of drink can only be lost, the afternoon sun is very strong, it is not easy to take pictures under the back of the big backlight.
