Buddhist holy sites: A visit

Sukhothai is an ancient Buddhist city.

Its sights are on par with Angkor Wat, Borobudur, and Bagan.

Secondary sites are Ayutthaya, Rangoon and Prambanan Hindu temple complex.

This visit of mine to Sukhothai completes my visit to all the Buddhist and Hinduism holy sites in Southeast Asia.
