Wrapped Buddha at Wat Phra Phai which was built in the twelfth century by Khmer King Jayavarman VII. The temple is even older than the ancient city of Sukhothai. Unlike many of the renovated temples at Sukhothai Wat Phra Phai lies in ruins and the Buddha images are often missing heads. Wat Phra Phai Luang was converted to Buddhist style after originally having been built in the Khmer Hindu style.
