  1. Great entry. Best choice ever it even has the word monument in it. I was thinking about it but int the end I didn’t.

    • Even I’m Thai, I didn’t know the history of this moment before until you asked me and I searched for its information on Wikipedia. Thanks for asking.

      Quoted from Wikipedia:
      “The monument was erected in June 1941 to commemorate the Thai victory in the Franco-Thai War, a brief conflict waged against the French colonial authorities in Indo-China, which resulted in Thailand annexing some territories in western Cambodia and northern and southern Laos.”
