Photographer's Note

Sukhotha was the first capital of Thailand (1238-1365), it remains impressive vestiges about it. The royal palate, of 160 000 square meters, surrounded by ditches, shelters Wat Mahathat, the largest temple and most significant of Sukhotha. Massive stone representations of the Buddha and more than two hundred chedis are offered to our glance. It is to better take its time because each step makes us discover a detail which was hidden the moment of front, an angle which one had not seen yet...

Le palais royal, de 160 000 mtres carrs, entour de douves, abrite Wat Mahathat, le temple le plus grand et le plus important de Sukhotha. De massives reprsentations en pierre du Bouddha et plus de deux cents chedis sont offerts notre regard. Il vaut mieux prendre son temps car chaque pas nous fait dcouvrir un dtail qui tait cach l'instant d'avant, un angle qu'on n'avait pas encore aperu...
