This monument honours the wife of the governor Nakhon Ratchasima, who is said to have defended and repelled an invasion by King Anouvong of Vientiane in 1826. The monument is a statue of the lady, surmounted on a tall plinth. She is depicted standing up tall and proud. Her face is turned to the left, while she holds a sword in her right hand with the point resting on the ground. Day and night, there are Thais who visit the monument to honour her and ask for blessings.

There is nothing really much to do here as a tourist except take a few pictures and move on. There also a few shopping options around.

This monument is famous here in nakhon Ratchasima, and all day long it's busy with locals praying and paying their respects here...though it gets really blazing hot here on midday, there's no shade whatsoever!

This point is a landmark of Korat city that has it all. I've been there during the day, it's very hot and sunny. This time, the plan has changed. sleeping in the room Let's go to a coffee café first. Then take the queue to pay respect to Ya in the evening instead. Beautiful light, cool, easy to walk, not hot feet, better than coming during the day.

Thao Suranaree also known as Ya Mo Monument is a local heroine who defeated an invasion army from Laos 200 years ago and saved Thailand from defeat.
The monument located in the middle town Nakhon Ratchasima province, the true story who was the wife of the deputy governor of this province is very inspiring, today is top place interest.

A Thai Boudicca who led the people against Lao invaders 200 years ago, 'though unlike the British heroine, she survived. Rightly she continues to be honoured by the people of Nakon Ratchasima. The statue itself is in front of one of the old city gates on the square moat surrounding the old city.

The famous heroine who defeated an invasion army from
Laos 200 years ago and saved Thailand from defeat. The monument situated just 1km south of route 2 in the middle of the large city is a must see. This famous ladies statue and the small park is well kept and very interesting for a short visit.

Inspiring story, the devotion of the faithful is impressive. Large crowds kept a somber vigil at this revered place.

This monument is to a local heroine of a couple of hundred years ago who saved the city. If you are Thai and live in the area - my Thai daughters in law knew nothing about her - and want to gain merit, go there. If you are a farang, you'll wonder what the heck it's all about!
