Golden Triangle ~ Phra Buddha Chiang Saen & Downtown Of Chiang Saen District.

Known as 'Land Of Golden Triangle', once called Wiang Hiran Nakhon NgoenYang and served as the capital before King Mengrai established Chiang Rai in 1262. The town was captured by the Burmese in the 16th century and sacked by King Rama I in 1803. Left a ghost town for a hundred years, it was repopulated around 1900, but still hasn't really staggered to its feet. Traces of old double city walls and many other antiquities still remain in and outside the district town. Several temples are within easy reach from the path.
