Elephant Kraal, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Province

King Naresuan's Reminder shows the brave King Naresuan on elephant back defeating the Burmese
Crown Prince (Phra Mahauparacha) in 1592
This unique teak and brick structure, just beyond Ayutthaya's riverine island, was formerly used to entrap wild elephants herded down from the North... Such occurrences were traditionally presided over by Ayutthaya monarchs, partly because the mighty beasts were vital to Ayutthaya's Military strength.
