NAKHON SI THAMMARAT (NNT) - An ancient city has been discovered on a mountain range in the southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat.

 

The stone construction on the mountain range in Nakhon Si Thammarat is believed to be over 1,000 years old. The architecture resembles an ancient deity, while the stones are laid out to form an image of the universe.

 

Phum Jiradejwong, a historian in Nakhon Si Thammarat, led an exploration team to the ancient city, which was noticed and recorded by an early Chinese explorer more than 1,000 years ago. The expedition led by Mr. Phum started three years ago. The group called themselves "Explorers of the Mountain City". This discovery could be one of the country’s most important archaeological finds.

 

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great once had a conversation about this ancient city with the then Education Minister, Samphan Thongsamak. Furthermore, Khun Phantharak Rajjadej once asked a forest ranger to help find an ancient city wall in Nakhon Si Thammarat. No discoveries were made until recently, when Mr. Phum’s team explored the area. The Governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat, Siripat Patkul, was notified about the discovery.

 

He coordinated with the Protected Areas Regional Office 5 and Khao Nan National Park to deploy teams of explorers to thoroughly inspect the site and ultimately make this archaeological site official.

This may become a mecca for Chinese tourism, especially since it was a Chinese explorer who originally "mapped" it.

and they will colonize it the same way as they did with the islands in SCS, all of it within/ covered by the so called (imaginary) 9 dash line.... trouble in the horizon for Prayut and the Gang
