An impressive statue which helps you to understand the history of the Country and the culture of the People. Be Aware of the traffic. Parking is possible near by.

It is just a rondabout with a nice monument of King Rama 1 in the middle. Pretty sad this ranks number 5 of things to do in Buriram. I think you can find better things to do here.

This Monument really stands out. It's very well done but you need to be on foot to experience it properly.

A huge monument of King Rama 1 astride the back of an elephant. Probably the most impressive welcome to a city I’ve seen so far. Worth a visit and a close look.

Stoped of here quickly to pay my respects after a long hot day . It was evening time and I would definitely recommend about 19:00 or later to visit as it seemed so peaceful, yet it is set at a busy junction.
