The Suthewa Rusi Statue is in front of the Town Hall in Lhampun City. Legend has it that the Rusi, or ascetic, was the actual founder of Hariphunchai. As an ascetic refraining from worldly affairs he invited Phra Nang Chamthevi, a daughter of the King of Lop Buri, to ascend to the throne and helped her to firmly establish Buddhism in the land.
