Amphoe Mueang, Lopburi
Located near the main town gate, the statue of Thailand’s King Narai the Great was built as tribute to the beloved monarch. He is credited with making great strides for technological development, enhancing close foreign relations and boosting the prosperity of Lop Buri and the Ayutthaya Kingdom. King Narai imported modern technology and devices such as terracotta pipes and also established astronomy observatories. In addition, his innovative foreign policies helped him establish close diplomatic ties with then-colonial European powers.
The shrine is open daily from 8.00 am-5.00 pm.
