Notice: Undefined index: isbn in /customers/6/2/a/elephant.se/httpd.www/database2.php on line 1540 Sanam Chang Phueak Park (???????????????????????): Used as the ground to give the king a white elephant (chang phueak) named "Phra Sawet Sura Khachathan".

Minister M.R. Kukrit Pramoj claim he came from Yala province:

Phra Surakachatharn was found when he was separated from his herd by a village headman in Yala when he was only a baby.
1968: When it was time for an elephant from Yala to move into the palace in 1968, King Bhumibol Adulyadej reportedly sent a statement through his servants to also adopt the elephant’s best friend, a dog called “Nang Biew,” so the animals could be raised together at the palace
