Rama Khamhaeng National Museum

Interesting
The Rama Khamhaeng National Museum enables visitors to grasp an understanding of the history of the first capital of Thailand, a symbol of the emergence of the Thai nation, its artistic importance and its influence. The remarkable collection of Buddhas, the highlight of which is a delicate and elegant walking Buddha made from bronze, illustrates the art of Sukhothai statuary. Another important exhibit, a copy of the stele of King Rama Khamhaeng, is said to be the first text written in the Thai language. Admire also the ceramics and archaeological remains on display in the museum.
