Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park, Tourist Attractions, Places of Interest, Travel Guide, Central Thailand

The entrance to the Park is approximately 5 km. off Kamphaeng Phet town at Km. 360 on the left of the Kamphaeng Phet - Phran Kratai route. The Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park comprises ancient monuments built of different materials on Ihe east and west banks of the Ping River. 

The remains on the east bank where Kamphaeng Phet town is located were built from laterite and were of large scales while those on the west bank which belonged to Nakhon Chum town were built out of brick and were of smaller scales. However, there is a common artistic style that reflects a blend of contemporary Sukhothai and Ayutthaya arts. 

A number of ancient monuments can also be found in the outskirts 2 km. to the northwest of Kamphaeng Phet town in the so-called "Aranyik Area" where forest-dwelling monks stayed and practised meditation for their insight development. 

The Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park, together with Sukhothai Historical Park and Si Satchanalai Historical Park, were combincdly proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on 12 December 1991.
