Si Satchanalai Historical Park
Si Satchanalai Historical Park is located on the bank of the Yom River. The ancient town, formerly called Muang Chaliang, was named Si Satchanalai during the reign of Phra Ruang when a new administrative centre was established to replace Chaliang. Ruins of 134 monuments have been discovered within the park

Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat
Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat also called Wat Phra Borommathat Muang Chaliang or Wat Phra Prang, is situated 3 kilometers to the south of ancient Si Satchanalai's wall. An immense laterite prang on a square base marks the center of the temple. A steep staircase in front of the huge prang leads to a room where a reliquary is enshrined.

Wat Khao Phanom Phloeng
This is a hilltop temple within the old town of Si Satchanalai. A laterite chedi in the center, a large viham or image hall in front, and a small sanctuary behind all lie in ruins Some laterite pillars and a damaged Buddha image constructed of laterite slabs and coated with mortar are still to be seen.

Wat Khao Suwan Khiri
This is also a hilltop temple situated 200 meters away from Phanom Phloeng Hill. A huge bell-shaped chedi on a 5-tiered base marks the center of the temple. Ruins of a viham and chedi, and fragments of huge stucco figures lie scattered on the ground. The similarity between some figures here and those at Wat Chang Lorn in the old town of Sukhothai leads to the belief that it was King Ramkhamhaeng the Great of the Sukhothai Kingdom who had this temple constructed.

Wat Chang Lom
This is an important monument within the old town of Si Satchanalai. A huge bell-shaped chedi supported by 39 elephants, with 4 of them at 4 cardinal points elaborately decorated, marks the center of the temple. Above the chedis base, there are niches enshrining images of the Buddha subduing Mara.

Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo
This is one of the most beautiful temples in Sukhothai Province. Chedis of different artistic styles and influence were built within the area of this temple. Mural paintings, seriously damaged, are still to be seen in some chedis.

Wat Suan Kaeo Utthayan Yai
This is located near Wat Chedi Chet Thaeo with only a dirt road in between. A large image hall lies in remains within this temple. The monastery is also called Wat Kao Hong or the 9 roomed temple.

Wat Nang Phaya
This is famous for its delicate stucco relief on the remains of the northwestern wall of the 7 roomed "viham" or "image hall". The pillars of this viham are decorated with unglazed ceramic designs. The central laterite chedi is surrounded by lampposts and accessible by a set of narrow stairs.

Wat Suan Kaeo Utthayan Noi
This is the only temple within the old town of Si Satchanalai with a brick building in front. The ruins of this temple consist of a whole laterite image hall with a laterite roof.
