Walls of Chiang Mai

Bits of history in Chiang Mai

Once upon a time, there was a Kingdom in Northern Thailand. A moat was dug and a huge red brick wall built. Above, a red flag with a white elephant waved in the hot wind. Battles were fought and won and lost. Eventually this kingdom became part of the Kingdom of Thailand. Many of the walls and gates still stand, seven hundred years later as a testament to times past.
