The monument of king Naresuan the Great was erected in this place to commemorate his visit to southern outpost towns with an overnight at Cha-Am. The king looks out to the sea holding a sword in his hand. The statue is not big but it’s much respected, as you can see there are many offerings (predominantly different size cocks) around it.
About Naresuan the Great, why he is so respected by Thais and why so many roosters surround him, I will tell you in biographic article.
To the south from the monument (right behind the mouth of a river) starts one of the longest beaches of Thailand.
