What / Why :

The birthplace and a resident of King Naresuan the Great, Chan Palace is located in the compound of Phitsanulok Phittayakom School. At present, the site is being excavated and the entire palace will be restored as a future historical attraction.

King Naresuan was born in the Palace in 1555, and the grounds now have a small shrine which contains a life-sized statue of the King pouring water out of a cup to symbolise a declaration of independence from Burma. This shrine is very popular with the locals, who burn incense and leave offerings at the foot of the statue. There is also a small museum here with pictures and legends of the King's life. Some English captions are available, so it's definitely worth a browse.
