The Heroines of Phuket

Heroines of Phuket

The Heroines of Phuket were 2 sisters called Chan and Mook who rallied the people of Phuket to fight off Burmese invaders in the year 1785. In those days the main town in Phuket was at Thalang in the middle of the island. The sisters are also called the Heroines of Thalang and there is a festival every year to commemorate the battle. The 2 sisters were later honored by King Rama I, being given the names Thao Thep Krasatri and Thao Sri Sunthorn. This statue is on a traffic circle on the main road between the north of Phuket and Phuket Town, a bit south of the town of Thalang.
