King Naresuan The Great Shrine
Reviewed 1 December 2015

King Naresuan the Great is one of the most highly revered Siamese kings, renown for his battles with the invading Burmese. He is the hero of an epic Thai movie, much loved and repeatedly viewed by Thais.

There is a problem because there are many shrines to King Naresuan in Thailand, including at Phitsanulok, his birthplace, which is 210 km from Mae Sot.

Many tourists have visited the Shrine of King Naresuan in Mae Sot, and because there is no English signage, have assumed they are visiting the Shrine of King Taksin the Great, who succeeded King Naresuan.

Some of them have even posted incorrect reviews on TripAdvisor and mix up photographs of King Naresuan and King Taksin.

There is a very simple way to tell the difference between the two kings. King Naresuan is almost always depicted in portraits and statuary without a hat and he has a flat top hair style.

King Taksin is almost always depicted wearing a pointed conical helmet.
