Queen Suriyothai Monument

The monument, a statue really, is impressive -- it depicts a fierce looking King Maha Chakkraphat on his war elephant, surrounded by Siamese soldiers, immediately after his queen fell.

According to legend, the tragic slaying of the queen was what roused the strength and bravery in the Siamese to repell that particular Burmese invasion. Though not overcrowded thanks to its spacious confines, the park sees a lot of local visitors on weekends, and a small but good food market sets up near the park.

If you make it this far, you might as well enjoy a picnic lunch under a tree.

How to get there
If coming from Chedi Phu Khao Thong, continue along the riverside road and take a right onto Route 347, which takes you straight to the park entrance on the left after a few hundred metres.
