It's not enough to bash in heads, you have to bash in minds

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.
