Wiang Kum Kam

 

Wiang Kum Kam is an ancient town located in Saraphi District, around 5 km. from the southeastern corner of Chiang Mai's city centre.

Half-hidden behind a tranquil neighbourhood of traditional wooden houses, Buddhist temples and longan orchards, are the sprawling remains of Wiang Kum Kam, an ancient capital town that briefly ruled over Lanna, the former northern Thai Kingdom over 700 years ago. It is an archaeological site along the Ping River, which was built by King Mangrai as his capital before he moved it to Chiang Mai. It was flooded and completely submerged under the Ping River more than 700 years ago.
