Northern Thailand Sights

Wat Traphang Thong Lang

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 03/14/2013

Fodor's Review

The square mondop of Wat Traphang Thong Lang is the main sanctuary, the outer walls of which boast beautiful stucco figures in niches—some of Sukhothai's finest art. The north side depicts the Buddha returning to preach to his wife. On the west side he preaches to his father and relatives. Note the figures on the south wall, where the story of the Buddha is accompanied by an angel descending from heaven.
