This is the famous love story of Sisudhon and Manora. A long time ago, there was the richest kingdom named Pancaranagara, in which lived a handsome young man named Prince Sudhon or Sisudhon. He was the only child of King Adhittayavong and Queen Chandhadhevi. The young prince was remarkable, handsome, intelligent, and kind. One day, Hunter Bun, a famous hunter in the kingdom, discovered the secret bathing pool that was used by seven Kinnari (beautiful half-women and half-swans) who were the daughters of King Tumerat. One of the seven Kinnari was named Manora. The hunter caught Manora with a snare and brought her to Prince Sisudhon. When they met each other they immediately fell in love.
