Wat Sri Sawai, Thailand

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. Upload from May 21, 2012

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
