The statue of Surin’s first mayor was built to honor Phaya Surin, who played a significant role in Surin’s history. It is situated at southern gate, which once was the inner city wall. The antique brass statue is 2.2m high with a curve-blade pike in its right hand, mirroring his excellent skill in controlling war elephants and prosperity of elephants in Surin since ancient time. The statue holds a pair of swords on the back, showing warrior bravery which was his heritage to all Surin descendants. The monument was officially opened on April 13, 1985. Nearby, close to the moat, is the elephant monument and Pakam Spirit Shrine to present the history of the city.
