Suthewa Rusi Statue

In front of the Town Hall is the Suthewa Rusi Statue. Legend has it that the Rusi, or ascetic, was the actual founder of Hariphunchai. As an ascetic refraining from worldly affairs, he invited Phra Nang Chamthevi, a daughter of the king of Lopburi, to ascend the throne and helped her to firmly establish Buddhism in the land.
