New book on Sukhothai's Wat Si Chum

No Comments

Wat Si Chum is one of the more unusual and significant 13th century monuments in the ancient city of Sukhothai. A monumental Buddha is almost encased in a square building and an inner staircase circumambulates the statue with depictions of the Jataka tales, which talk about the past incarnations of Buddha. The wat is the subject of focus in a new book ‘Past Lives of the Buddha’ which is reviewed in this article in the Bangkok Post. You may place an order of the book on Amazon here.
