City Pillar Shrine

Thai name : ศาลหลักเมือง

GPS : 14.88452963,103.48925828 (See on the map)


Located on Lak Mueang Road, 500m west of city hall, the khmer style shrine is a sacred icon of the city. At first, the shrine did not house any pillar. In 1968, the Fine Arts Department had designed a new city shrine and got a golden cassia log from Mr. Prasith Maneekan, Amphoe Sai Yok, Kanchanaburi, and made it the city pillar. The log is 3m long and has a 1m circumference. The rite and celebration took place on March 15, 1974.
