Wiang Kum Kam


Ancient city of Wiang Kum Kam was lost from historical records in 16th century.  The almost 900 years old city was rediscovered in 1984 near Ping river, 6 km from the Chiang Mai’s moat surrounding the tourist center.
You can visit the area dotted with  a few ruined temples in tuk tuk or hire a pony carriage at the front of main gate.
