.Don Chedi Monument The monument is located in Tambon Don Chedi, on Highway 322, 31 kilometres

from downtown.  The royal  monument  of  King Naresuan  the  Great  and the  pagoda were built to

commemorate the victory over the Burmese troops. In January 1592, he defeated Phra Maha Upparacha,

the Burmese CrownPrince in a royal duel on elephant back; as a result, the Siamese kingdom regained

its sovereignty  from the occupation of Burma.

The Royal Thai Army renovated the pagoda in 1952, and built a new pagoda over the ancient one. The new

pagoda is 66 metres high and 36 metres wide. His Majesty the King presided over the worshipping and

opening ceremony on 25 January 1959. Thus, it has become the Royal Thai Army Day since then. A large

celebration is held annually around the monument.

About 100 metres from the monument, people also flock to worship the statues of King Naresuan the Great and his elder sister Phra Suphankanlaya in a shrine in the compound.
