              If anyone knows, it would be most appreciated if you could fill in the details.
              It is a statue of King Naresuan, depicted holding a spear and riding his horse into battle. Born in Pitsanulok, he ruled the Ayutthaya Kingdom from 1590 until his death in 1605. He is noted for his campaigns to defend Siam from Burmese rule.

              This is Wat Phukhao Thong. The impressive chedi was built in the eighteenth century on the remains of a former one.

              It's a statue of King U-Thong, also known as King Ramathibodi I.
              He was the first King of the Ayutthaya Kingdom, having married a daughter of the ruler of Suphanburi, and with family ties to Lopburi also.
