War Elephants Monument  -  
 Address:
 Known as: Bronze elephant sculptures
 Description: There are four large bronze monuments that feature Burmese war elephants in full battle gear with armed mahouts beside them. They are oriented toward each cardinal direction. The monuments are all cast to actual size.
These monuments were originally located at Thung Makham Yong battlefield as a component of Queen Suriyothai Monument.
They were molded after the Second World War by esteemed artist, Khun Khaimuk Chuto (also written as Khaimuk or Khaimook Chouto, Chudoo or Xuto), who was the first female sculpture in the country. The four monuments resided at Phaniat elephant kraal until they were moved to this current location.
The monuments are located north of the main island, adjacent to the park in front of Phaniat Palace. They are easily viewable from the road.
