Contact: Amphoe Mueang, Kalasin Tel. -

This statue is located in front of the post office in the city of Kalasin. The life-sized monument is made from bronze and is cast in a standing position with the right hand holding a bronze kettle, and left hand holding a magic sword. The people of Kalasin donated funds to build this monument to express their gratitude to the founder of the city, Phraya Chaisunthon. Phraya Chai Sunthon (also known as Thao Somphamit) evacuated residents from the left bank of the Mekong River to settle along the Pao River over 200 years ago, marking the beginning of Kalasin.
