The natural lake is on Highway 3038, 3 kilometres from the Don Chedi Monument or about 40 kilometres from Amphoe Mueang. The huge lake was involved in the war when King Naresuan defeated the Burmese troops. With water supply that could feed an army of over 100,000 warriors, elephants and horses as well as the better location over the hill away from the enemy, here was the stronghold of the Siamese Army for months. It is pitiful that the lake, at present covering an area of only 29 rai (11.6 acres), is in poor condition.
