Information

Originally constructed by King U-Thong, the ancient city wall consisted of a moat and mound topped by wooden poles. In later reigns, the dirt wall was replaced with brick-and-mortar, and a number of forts were built, including the Pom Maha Chai, Pom Sat Kop, Pom Phetch, Pom Ho Ratchakhrue and Pom Champa Phon. A larger fortress was built at the confluence of the Chao Phraya and Pa Sak rivers.
