The Rainbow Bridge. A rainbow is a beautiful natural phenomenon. Because rainbows tend to appear after the rain has stopped, ancient Thai people explained that the rainbow drinks the water.

Thailand’s seasonal monsoon rains help create an ecological system marked by natural diversity in a land which is one of the most fertile in the world.

One of nature’s most precious beauties, the rainbow is a symbol of fertility and happiness.

Garden of Pha Daeng-Nang Ai,  Nang Ai, the most beautiful girl in Khomkham City, had secret trysts with Pha Daeng, the ruler of Phaphong. Her beauty, unparalleled and celebrated, was eventually discovered by the son of the Naga king. The Naga prince, transformed himself into a very handsome gentleman and tried to charm her, but did not succeed in winning her heart. Finally, he attempted to trick her by disguising himself into a white squirrel to get close to her and kidnap her from Pha Daeng. However, when Pha Daeng and Nang Ai saw the squirrel, they ordered a hunter to trap it. The prince, in the guise of the squirrel, is killed by the hunter. The meat of the animal is fed to the people in the town. Strangely, the meat of the squirrel kept increasing even though much of it had already been cut off to feed both the people in the city and neighbouring towns. Thereafter, a huge rainstorm struck the town suddenly.

Considering that it was not a common natural occurrence, Pha Daeng tried to escape quickly on horse with Nang Ai, but in vain. Nang Ai fell from the horse and was drawn into the river. The city became a vast pool. The spirit of the dead squirrel turned into the king of Naga, taking Nang Ai into his underwater kingdom. It was said that those who had not eaten the meat were saved from the tragic event. Muang Boran constructed a group of statues based on the legend of Pha Daeng and Nang Ai. This monument will surely further the imagination of those viewers who were once stirred by the local tale of the Northeast, Pha Daeng and Nang Ai.
