About Suan Rak Park
Suan Rak Park is located on the western side of the old walled city in the centre of Nakhon Ratchasima, which is also known as Khorat. This small municipal park has a lot of statues relating to the history and culture of Nakhon Ratchasima.
The most famous statue is of ‘Lady Mo’ who, according to legend, led an uprising of the town’s inhabitant’s against the their Laotian rulers. The main statue of Lady Mo is a place of worship with some Thai Buddhists revering her as something akin to a saint or a local Joan of Arc. There is also another statue showing Lady Mo leading the town people armed with kitchen implements to fight the Lao invaders.
Other interesting statues include representations of the ‘Khorat Cat’, which is a breed better known as the Siamese Blue cat, which originated from a smaller town in the same province.
Suan Rak Park has a long promenade with seating and long thin pool which is in fact part of the moat which once surrounded the city. By day the park is busy and lively public space, however, at night it has reputation locally as being the city’s red light district.
