Chiang Mai Information:
Chiang Mai is a city in mountainous northern Thailand.
Founded in 1296, it was capital of the independent
Lanna Kingdom until 1558.
The Old City area still retains vestiges of walls and moats from its history
as a cultural and religious center.
It is also home to hundreds of elaborate Buddhist temples,
including 14th-century Wat Phra Singh and 15th-century
Wat Chedi Luang, adorned with carved serpents.
Its name means "New City" and was so named
because it became the new capital of Lan Na when it was founded in 1296,
succeeding Chiang Rai, the former capital founded in 1262.
