Thao Thep Kasattri and Thao Sri Sunthon or Chan and Mook were two sisters who lived in Phuket, Siam in the late eighteenth century. According to the popular belief, they repelled a five-week invasion of Phuket by Burma in 1785 by dressing up as male soldiers and rallying the Siamese troops. Chan and Mook were later honored by King Rama I with the names Thao Thep Kasattri and Thao Sri Sunthon respectively.
The "Heroine's Monument" honoring them is situated on the main highway (402) between the Phuket International Airport and Phuket town.
