About The Navel City PillarAnother gem of a structure in Chiang Rai demonstrating the historical richness and architectural brilliance that Thailand claims The Navel City Pillar is one of the iconic places to visit in Chiang Rai. Unlike other cities in Thailand that have a single central pillar erected, Chiang Rai’s city pillar is a collection of 109 pillars.
The original name of the pillar is Sadu Meaung, and it was constructed in 1987 to mark the occasion of the sixtieth birthday of the then king, Bhumibol Adulyadej. The structure is a significant landmark in the city from both cultural and historical perspectives, and is definitely worth checking out.
