Suan Rak Park in Nakhon Ratchasima
Suan Rak Park is a municipal park located in the centre of Nakhon Ratchasima, and is the cultural focal point of the city. What makes the park so special is the statues and monuments in the park relating to the legends and history of Nakhon Ratchasima, also known as Khorat.
The most famous former resident of Nakhon Ratchasima is Ya Mo, also known as Lady Mo or Grandmother Mo. There is a statue to her in Suan Rak Park which a constant stream of Thai people visit to pray to the famous lady. According to legend in 1862 Grandmother Mo led local people in a battle to liberate the city from a short lived occupation by armed forces from Laos. In the north end of the park there is also a museum, the Thai Suanari Museum, which displays artefacts related to the legend of Lady Mo as well as a wall mural and a diorama telling the story. There are other interesting statues in the park as well including several of Nakhon Ratchasima’s other famous inhabitants, the Khorat cat, known to cat fanciers in Europe and North America as the ‘Siamese Blue’. Suan Rak Park also a small man made lake which local teenagers like to swim in, although the water is stagnant so it is probably not particularly healthy to do so.
