What we say: 1 star

Eighteen years later, when expansionist King Mangrai marched on Phayao from Chiang Rai, King Ngam Muang went out and met him. Rather than fighting, the two struck a deal making the two realms allies rather than enemies.

The deal gave some territory to Mangrai (who was the more senior and certainly more powerful of the two) but war was averted and prosperity did follow.

The statue is near the public park looking over the lake and the foreground is popular for early morning tai chi classes.
