Nonthaburi City Pillar Shrine Bang Si Muang, Muang Nonthaburi, Nonthaburi. Nonthaburi is an old province since when Ayutthaya was the capital of Thailand.
The first district of Nonthaburi is Ban Talat Kwan. Nonthaburi was officially established as a province in 1549, the time of King Maha Chakkraphat.
According to the evidence in royal annals saying that “King Maha Chakkraphat built chedi vihara named Wat Sob Sawhun for Queen Suriyothai.
Then he said that people of  Ayutthaya’s  minor cities had ran away into forests and mountains making it difficult to unite them back in the city.
Therefore, from now on Ta-Jeen area shall be Sakhonburi (Samut Sakhon province) and Baan Talard Kwan shall be Nonthaburi”
The inscription in royal annals above proves that Nonthaburi was certainly established as a province in 1902. First, there was no city pillar but there might be city shrine which King Narai the Great gave an order to build it at the entrance of Om canal.
There were 3 city god statues believed to protect the city, Chao Por Luk Meung, Chao Por Sue Meung and Chao Por Song Meung. However, there was no clue of City Pillar. The Fine Arts department also insisted on that.
City Pillar is the heart of the city. It unites and harmonizes all the lives in the city. It is also a place for the city gods, Chao Por Luk Meung, Chao Por Sue Meung and Chao Por Song Meung, to stay in order to protect and enrich the city. To build a City Pillar, royal permission is mandatory.  There is only one City Pillar per province allowed.
Thus, when Mr. Parinya Narkshatri was Nonthaburi’s provincial governor, he asked for permission to build a new city hall at government center on Rattanathibet road and also a City Pillar nearby.
It is of great generosity from King Bhumipol as he sent Crown Pirnce Maha Vajiralongkorn to perform the City Pillar of Nonthaburi founding ceremony on Friday the third of February 1989. After that, the City Pillar construction committee started to collect money to build the pillar.
