The Town Wall of Chalieng, Si Satchanalai Historical Park, Sukthai Province
Remains can be seen of ancient town walls built from blocks of laterite on earthen ramparts to enclose certain areas southeast of Si Satchanalai town. The northern side of the areas, however, has the Yom river as a natural boundary. The dating of the wall is still uncertain. Some scholars have suggested that the walls belonged to the pre-Si Satchanalai town, called Chalieng in certain historic chronicles. It has been, therefore, called the town wall of Chalieng. It is quite possible that the walls were initially built as earthen ramparts, and the laterite blocks were added on top of the ramparts in a later period.
