Attraction Details

The ancient town of Suphan Buri was once located at Tambon Rua Yai on the western bank of the Tha Chin River. An earth wall and moat are all that remains, situated between Wat Pa Lelai and the City Pillar Shrine.

On the western side, two sturdy walls were built with a mound and a moat in between them. The inner wall stretches 3.5 kilometers north to south, and has a width of 1 kilometer, reaching the bank of the river. The wall on the eastern side has disappeared, as it was dismantled during the reign of King Maha Chakkraphat. The Fine Arts Department rebuilt the town gate on Malai Maen Road, in an area on which the original town gate is believed to have once stood.
