City Pillar

City Pillar is at the corner of Chom Phon and Prachak roads.  This Chinese-style shrine houses the city pillar that is worshipped by Thais and Chinese.  Built in the reign of King Narai the Great during 1656-1688, the shrine and city pillar are made of wood.  The inner eastern wall is covered with fired clay tiles with raised designs of the battle of Thao Suranari and the way of life of Thais in ancient times.
