Monument Of Heroes And Khai Bang Rachan Park

  • Monument Of Heroes And Khai Bang Rachan Park
    Khai Bang Rachan Park is an arboretum for relaxation having a monument concerning the heroes of Bang Rachan. The inauguration ceremony for this monument was performed by the present King Rama IX. The figures on the monument refer to the villagers of Bang Rachan who performed a unique performance in Thai history during the reign of King Ekkathat in 1765 through fighting against the Burmese enemy part of whose armed forces passed by Bang Rachan. Despite being many more troops than the villagers, the Burmese troops had to make eight attacks against the village before it was defeated due to its shortage of weapons. Such heroic performance has been currently appraised among the Thai. The fortress seen in the park area is the replica imitated from the ancient actual design. There are some important statutory monuments such as Wat Pho Kao Ton (Nine Bodhi Trees Monastery), a Vihara housing the statue of Phra Archan Thammachot, a Buddhist monk who was an outstanding leader of Bang Rachan villagers at that time. The Park is located 13 kms. away from town on Sing Buri-Khai Bang Rachan-Suphanburi Road.
