This two chedis belonged to the two elder of King Intharacha's three sons, who both returned to
Ayutthaya to seize the throne when they heard of their father's death. Meeting near the palace,
they fought a duel on elephant back and both were killed. The youngest son who was not involved in the fight,
then automatically ascended the throne as Phra Borom Rachathirat. To make merit for his dead brothers,
the new king built two chedis on the spot where they died.
