Wiang kum kam (เวียงกุมกาม)

Archaeological evidence discovered indicate that this area was once the locality of the Shaicob community (periphery) in the Hariphunchai region, which remained inhabited until the rise of the Lanna Kingdom.  In the year 1296 A.D. King Mhangrai established Chiang Mai to become the center of the Lanna region, while keeping Wiang Kum Kam as a twin capital city. Wiang Kum Kam was once a large community, equal in population to Chiang Mai at the time.

When the Ping River changed its course at a point where it flowed from the north to the west very near to Wiang Kum Kam. The evidence recovered from the soil layers, is clear that the destruction and abandonment was not initially caused by floods. Rather, it was primarily caused by the upheaval of war, which occurred as Myanmar sought to acquire Chiang Mai and Lanna. Myanmar forcibly relocate the people of Wiang Kum Kam as slave labour. The city was left uninhabited and transformed into a forested area. Subsequently, the continuous floods and currents of the Ping River eventually covered the city with 1-2 meters of sediment.

The old area of Wiang Kum Kam had now become a farming and agricultural area. The Fine Arts Department has discovered 42 historical monuments both inside and outside the city periphery.
