Wat Thwet

Most people come to Sukhothai to see the incredible ruins, but there are some very unique modern wats that are worth a visit.

Wat Thwet was restored by a monk roughly 20 years ago. He fashioned many sculptures around the wat to depict many stories from Buddhist mythology, and images from a dream he had.

Buddhist hell. He was an alcoholic in life so now in hell he has scalding liquids poured down his throat; the man standing behind him has abnormally large hands, because he was a violoent person in life. Hardly seems fair.
