Built in the 14th century, Wat Sri Sawai is probably the oldest Wat in the Sukhothai Historical Park. Having just visted Wat Mahathat (NE of Sri Sawai) and several wats in the Si Satchanalai Historical Park (east of Sukhothai Historical Park) such as Wat Chang Lom and Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo and still more wats on the itinerary to visit, I have to admit I was starting to get the many wats mixed up in my mind (ie. what wat was what!) so thankfully I started taking photos of the signs as we visited the Wats.
