What we say: 3 stars

In 1826, the Lao army invaded Khorat. With the assistant governor away, his wife Khunying Mo, stepped up to lead the defence.

She organised Thai soldiers and villagers alike to take up arms and together they defeated the bigger, stronger invaders.

The reigning monarch of the time, King Rama III rewarded Khunying Mo’s courage by erecting a statue of her in Khorat’s center, where it reverently stands today with locals continuously adorning it with offerings of flowers and incense.
