According to the ancient belief, a city pillar must be erected when setting up a city. The city pillar of Chiang Mai was erected in 1296 when King Meng Rai named it the capital city of the Lanna Kingdom. It is enshrined in a compact pavilion located in front of Wat Chedi Luang, and every May there will be a festival to celebrate the city pillar.
