“Khum” means a mansion or house owned by members of Lanna royal family, thus Khum Chao Burirat literally means Chao Burirat’s mansion. Khum Chao Burirat is one of the few ancient “khum” left in Chiang Mai, featuring a Western-style structure on the first floor with Lanna wood accents on second floor. It was built during 1889-1892, showing the invasion of Western (British) culture among the royals during those ancient years. Chao Burirat was one of the highest-level royals in Chiang Mai during the period of 1774 - 1932. The mansion is now the office of the Lanna Architecture Centre, Architecture Faculty, Chiang Mai University.
