About Nakhon Ratchasima
There are two major tourist attractions in Nakhon Ratchasima. The most most famous attraction is Suan Rak Park which contains several points of interest. The park is the location of the Thao Suanari statue. Thao Suanari, also known as Grandma Yo, is famed for leading the city’s residents to rise up against invading forces from Laos. The city of Nakhon Ratchasima was captured by a Laotian army in 1862 during King Chao Anuvong’s very brief attempt to free Laos from being a vassal state under Siamese rule. The statue attracts a lot of visitors. There is also a museum to Thao Suanari in the park, as well as a lake and lots of interesting statutes.
The other major tourist attraction in Nakhon Ratchasima is Wat Phra Narai Maharat, which is a Buddhist temple in the middle of a lake located in the city centre. Wat Phra Narai Maharat has a very old sandstone statue of Hindu deity Vishnu dating back to the time when the area was controlled by the Khmer civilisation, who believed in both Hinduism and Buddhism at very points in their history. The lake around the temple is also well known for the water monitor lizard who live there. These lizards have grown to an extraordinary size and age having being fed and protected by the monks at the temple.
