About Travel to Phitsanulok
Phitsanulok, which has around 70,000 permanent residents, is one of the larger cities in the Northern Region of Thailand. The city itself, however, receives relatively few foreign visitors although it is popular with Thai visitors. As a consequence, there are few hotels or restaurants in the city that cater well to needs of foreign visitors in terms of basic things like providing menus in English.
Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat
Phitsanulok city centre has very few old buildings as most of the older wooden buildings in the city were destroyed in a fire in 1957. One historic site that wasn’t burnt down is Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat, and this what the majority of the Thai leisure visitors to Phitsnaulok come to see.
Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat was founded in 1357 and houses a very famous statue of the Lord Buddha called the Phra Phuttha Chinnarat statue. The Phra Phuttha Chinnarat statue depicts the Lord Buddha in a seated position surrounded by flames, which is unusual. The statue, which is kept in a highly ornate shrine hall, is often described as being the most beautiful statue of the Lord Buddha in Thailand.
Wat Wihan Thong and the Chan Palace
The other major tourist attraction in Phitsanulok in the reconstruction of the Chan Palace and the adjacent ruined Wat Wihan Thong. The Chan Palace was the birth place of one of Thailand’s most important historical figures, King Naresuan, and many of the wooden buildings of the palace have been rebuilt in their original location.
Nearby Wat Wihan Thong is believed to have been the temple used by the King in his early years. Wat Wihan Thong hasn’t been rebuilt and visitors need to use their imagination to work out from the little that remains of the temple what the temple would have looked like at the end of the 16th Century when King Naresuan worhsipped there.
