Agreed. Here in Chiang Mai Thailand there are a number of such gates dating
from around 1200 AD, non-existent in the present except in name. Chiang Mai
Gate, Chang Phuak Gate are two. The Tha Phae Gate is still in existence
although it has been restored. It is the center of the Chiang Mai tourist
area and very well known to all who live here.
