Chaiya: Srivijaya metropolis of the north

Chaiya, once a regional capital of the Srivijaya Empire that controlled the coasts of Sumatra, Malay and Southern Thai Peninsula, western Borneo and Java in the 10th century.

I took a bus here from Surat Thani. Visited the Chaiya National Museum, Wat Boromma That Chaiya, and ruins of two Srivijaya chedis - Chedi Wat Long and Chedi Wat Kaew.
