The Prince of the Golden Conch or Sang Thong is an old folk tale taken from Panyatsa Jataka (Panasa Jataka). According to the Jataka, the tale of Sang Thong is known as Suwanna Sang Jataka. The story was adapted to be used in plays during the Ayutthaya and Rattanakosin periods.
The more complete version of Sang Thong was rewritten King Rama II and the court poets. The latest verse presentation has been performed in the theaters until today.
