Wat Khao Phra Bat, Si Satchanalai Historical Park, Sukthai Province
The hill called Khao Phra Bat, with this temple on top, is located near the Yom river. The major historic structures of this temple are the main Sri Lankan style chedi, a vihara, and a mandapa, all built from laterite blocks.
The text in Stone Inscription Number 3, also called the Inscription of Nakhorn Chum, made in 1357, mentions that a sculpture of the Buddha’s footprint made by King Maha Dharmaraja Li Thai of Sukhothai was placed at Si Satchanalai. The Thai word “Phra Bat” means the Buddha’s footprint. Thus, certain scholars believe that this temple once housed the Buddha’s footprint, now kept at Wat Choeng Khiri.
