Songkhla City Pillar

Located on Nang Ngam Road, the pillar, which is highly revered by the local residents, was constructed when the city was built. This area of the city has distinctly Chinese characteristics as can be seen in the Chinese-style building where the pillar is enshrined and nearby buildings on Nakhon Nai and Nakhon Nok Roads. The distinctive Chinese lifestyle and influence in the area is due to the presence of Chinese immigrants, who came to settle in Songkhla at the beginning of the 24th Buddhist Century and had a major role in the establishment of Songkhla.
