The Don Chedi Monument, located in Tambon Don Chedi, comprises two sites dedicated to King Naresuan the Great’s victory over Burmese forces. One is a royal monument erected in honor of the Siamese victory, whilst the other is a pagoda, or Chedi, enshrining relics.
It is chronicled that in 1592, King Naresuan the Great defeated Phra Maha Upparacha, leader of the Burmese army, in a fierce royal duel on elephant-back. As a result, Siam regained its sovereignty and freed itself from the Burmese occupiers.
