Overview

Elephants have been revered in Thailand for many centuries. Famous as the strongest animal to ride on and load, in Thailand, they were important in battle, with kings mounted on Elephants fighting the Burmese to defend Thailand on many occasions. In 1592, the personal battle between King Nareasuan and Mangsi Swa was a highly romanticized historical scene for Ayutthaya known as  Elephant Battle.

A white elephant is even included in the flag of the Royal Thai navy, and the  order of the white elephant is one of the highest honors, bestowed by the king till now. With the long period of relation to human, we could find the pictures of hundreds of elephant appear murals and statues across the country. This bicycle route will guide you around the Elephant Kraal and the monument of King Naresuan depicting the King on elephant battle scene.The tour also include to visit Wat Phukhoa which Prince Naresuan had a Thai style chedi built on top of the base in 1587 to commemorate Ayutthaya newly declared independence, Wat Rachaburana and Wat Meanang Plum.
