It is located in northeast Thailand, located approximately 157 miles (250 km) northeast of Bangkok and about 5 miles (8 km) south of Nakhon Ratchasima (also known as Khorat or Korat), the second largest city in Thailand. Reunification and Expansion There were still local warlords competing for Siam. Taksin marched first in 1768 to Pitsanulok to subjugate the Lord of Pitsanulok who ruled over Upper Chao Phraya Basin. Taksin was injured during the campaign and had to retreat. The war readily weakened Pitsanulok and then it was in turn subjugated by the Lord of Sakwangburi. The same year Taksin sent Thong Duang (Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke) and Boonma (Maha Sura Singhanat) to tame the Prince Theppipit - the ruler of Phimai to the north of Nakhon Ratchasima on the Khorat Plateau. The prince was a son of Borommakot and was defeated by Thonburi armies. Theppipit fled to Vientiene but was captured and then executed. Expansions and economic problems In 1776, a governor of Nangrong (modern Nakhon Nayok) had a row with the governor of Nakhon Ratchasima the head city of the region. The governor then sought supports from King Sayakumane of Champasak (Kingdom of Champasak). This became a ''casus bellum'' for Taksin to sent ''Chao Phraya'' Chakri to conquer Champasak. King Sayakumane fled but was captured and detained in Thonburi for two years until he was sent to rule his kingdom again in 1780 paying tribute to Thonburi. The Champasak campaign earned Chakri the title ''Somdet Chao Phraya'' Maha Kasatseuk. Taksin invented the title ''Somdet Chao Phraya'' for a mandarin with equal honor as a royalty. The stadium co-hosted the 2008 AFF Suzuki Cup. The use of the Surakul Stadium for this tournament had to be hastily arranged. Stadiums in Bangkok were intended to be used but because of the airport takeovers in Bangkok by the PAD (People's Alliance for Democracy) the AFF in consultation with the FAT decided to switch venues. Despite better stadiums being available in Nakhon Ratchasima (5th December Stadium); Chiang Mai (700th Anniversary Stadium) and Songkhla (Tinasulanon Stadium); the Surakul Stadium was chosen as all the teams could fly directly into Phuket. birth_place Pathum Thani (Pathum Thani Province), Thailand fighting_out_of Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand death_date '''Sirimongkol Singwangcha''' ( Commons:Category:Nakhon Ratchasima Wikipedia:Nakhon Ratchasima
