When Bangkok became the capital of Thailand in 1782, Nakhon Ratchasima has become the largest and strategically important city in the north-east of the country, guarding the border with Cambodia and Laos which were in vassal dependence on Siam. In 1826 the town was captured by the Laotian army of Anouvong king, who tried to gain independence for Laos. Organizing of a successful defense of the city is attributed to Kuning Mo, wife of the vice-governor Nakhon Ratchasima. Later she has received the name Thaosuranari, which means Brave woman. After, the city is revered her as a hero. In the end of XIX c. was held a reconstruction of old monuments and construction of residential areas.
