    The author argues that the Monument of Thao Suranari in Nakhon Ratchasima province is the first monument built in memory and respect of a lay person, after the 1932 political revolution that transformed the country from absolute monarchy to democracy. It must be noted that the monument is built for a local heroine. There was an ulterior motive behind the construction of the monument in 1934.
