Ku Chang Ku Ma is another tourist attraction that you should love, if you’re looking forward to history learning.

Let’s understand a thing first, the word ‘ma’ means ‘horse’ in English, and, for the same language, the word ‘chang’ means elephant.

Now you may wonder what do these two animals have to do with the site? Well, then, let’s find the answer.

Ku Chang Ku Ma is in fact the cemetery of Camadevi’s elephant and her son’s horse. Ku Chang and Ku Ma are located within the same area. Ku Chang is at the front side, and Ku Ma is behind it.

Start with Ku Chang, the legend says that Camadevi’s elephant was very powerful. It could even charm its enemies by staring at them. That’s no ordinary. It’s different from other elephants.

As it’s her beloved elephant, when it passed away, Camadevi kept its remains inside a pagoda, which is in a circle shape and no pointy peak. It was inspired by various types of art, probably Burmese too, making it looks quite unique.

Next, Ku Ma. You know that it stores the remains of Camadevi’s son’s horse. Yes, the remains is inside a pagoda too, but a square-shaped pagoda.

Go feast your eyes with this historic place. The atmosphere there is relaxing and peaceful. There are many trees, grass and rest corners for tourists too. Enjoy sightseeing and photography anytime.

How to get there 

You should start your trip from the downtown of Lamphun. Keep going along the old Chiang Mai-Lamphun road for about 2 kilometres. The site is near Wat Kai Kaee Community. It won’t be hard to find. Or, if you don’t have a car, just hire a tricycle or any other public vehicle you can find.
