The front one is Ku Chang which marks the burial site of Queen Chama Thewi’s war elephant called Phu Kam Ngu Khiaw which means dark skinned elephant that is mighty at war. it is a very popular shrine with daily visitors leaving loads of garlands and other devotional items.

The latter stupa marks the burial site of the Queen’s son’s horse. it is nowhere near as popular as Ku Chang, though it is not known if this a reflection n the son or the horse.

To get here, walk north out of town along the riverside road for about 15 minutes and you’ll reach a soi running off called Soi Ku Chang - follow this and the site is on your right.
