This is a very nice park located about 20 minutes outside the town of Ayutthaya. Nice for a drive around but to far and big to walk to.

a stunning monument ,not to be missed
Mar 2017 • Family
this monument is central in a vast park, that is very popular with locals and tourists alike , everything is just so beautiful well kept, not a trace of litter , and the work that must go into the making the whole park a sight to behold , there is another group of statues just in front of the monument that are dedicated to the Thai people . This park is well used by the Thai familys and has a lot to offer , try feeding the huge fish in the lake , a very good place to visit ,unwind and just enjoy .

Another Thai legend and from all the information I could find, quite rightly so! This legend is different as the hero is a heroine .
The statue is set in a large area which is very well maintained and very pretty. Raised up on a granite plinth standing high above the surrounding area it can be seen from quite a distance. A very pleasant place to spend an hour or more and plenty of seating beside the lake next to the statue.
During Ayutthaya period, Somdet Phra Maha Chakkraphat (The King) reigned the kingdom and had Somdet Phra Sri Suriyothai as his wife. The Burmese army surrounded Ayutthaya by using the invasion route via the Three Pagodas Pass from Kanchanaburi to the west, and then to the capital Ayutthaya. The King mounted his war elephant in preparation for battle. Somdet Phra Sri Suriyothai (the Queen) was so worried that she dressed in military attire and followed them on a war elephant. When the Ayutthaya army had faced the vanguard of the Burmese army , Somdet Phra Maha Chakkraphat (The King) engaged the enemy but the elephant charged away from the enemy. Somdet Phra Sri Suriyothai, therefore, charged ahead between the King and the Viceroy to block his pursuit and was fatally injured. Whenever the Burmese saw that it was a lady killed in battle they stopped. Very interesting story and only a few kilometres outside the city..

A large public park with big ponds for picnicking etc
Feb 2016 • Family
The monument itself is a life sized bronze of the historic Queen Suriyothai ("the Jeanne d'Arc of Thailand") who was killed in an elephant battle defending the kingdom. It is said the men who modeled for the statues of her footmen were the present day queen's bodyguards. Around the statue is a very large park with beautiful frangipani trees and grassy hills for running down or playing, and trails for jogging and biking and playing hide-and-seek.
