The point from where city fortifications started!

Jaeng Sri Poom or Phum is located in the northeast corner of the old city. Jaeng means ‘fort’ and Sri(lee) poom means ‘Light of the Land’. This is a historical corner of the old city as it was the place where the construction of the city wall was started by King Mangrai more than 700 years ago. Legend goes that there used to be a huge Banyan tree nearby which gave this point highly auspicious. Hence in order to be more powerful the king chose this point. The tree is long gone. There was a fire that ravaged the old city and the Sri Phum bastion was rebuilt by King Kawila. You can see an interesting shrine called San Lak Muang Jaeng Sri Phum near the fort.
