Wiang Tha Kan is an ancient city wall dated back to the Hariphunchai period, built before the advent of King Mengrai. During excavations, sandstone and earthen Buddha images including earthen amulets, brown jars with bones and Chinese porcelains from the Yuan Dynasty (1280-1368) were found in the area of Tha Kan village.
The best preserved of the ruins are the pagoda and the foundations of the viharn, constructed from bricks and laterite. Wiang Tha Kan is located about 34 kilometres to the south of Chiang Mai along Highway No.108.
