Old Thailand Military

This post is about the Old Thailand Military, well just in a couple of pictures. While touring around Ban Chang and it’s outskirts I came upon a unusual Buddhist Temple, take a look at http://travelingwithyourcamera.com/   for the full post on the temple. Walking around the temple, there were monks of course, but these guys were busy fixing the pump for their water well, and a number of very unusual bits and pieces within the walls. A number of these caught my eye, but this one stands out.

Thai War 1 Thai War 2

As you can see from the picture, battles were fought using Elephant’s has their mode of transport. So I just wonder what was the connection with the temple?
