Where in the world is this?
This is the Chang Phuak Gate that can be found on the northern wall of the Old City in Chiang Mai. The Old City was built more than 700 years ago and it was a city completely walled on its four sides. Because of the position of this gate at the north, new kings ceremoniously pass through the gate before their coronation. Originally, the name of this gate was Hua Wiang because their traditional belief states that the head (hua) of city (wiang) was located in this direction. They consider the north of the city as the head of Chiang Mai.
"We build too many walls and not enough bridges." - Isaac Newton
