Attraction Details :

Pratu Chum Phon is behind the monument.  It is an old city gate built during the reign of King Narai the Great in 1656.  The king commanded that a strong city wall be built.  Engineers from France, then an ally of the country, designed the city plan.  Nakhon Ratchasima at that time was an outpost in the shape of a rectangle of 1,000 x 1,700 metres.   The western Chum Phon Gate is the only 1 of 4 city gates that still stands.  The other three gates have been rebuilt.  Chum Phon Gate is built of large stones and bricks and covered with plaster.  The top is a watchtower made of wood with a tiled roof and decorated in the Thai style.
