PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Lampang

The escutcheon of Lampang shows the mondop of Wat Phrathat Lampang Luang (fig.) and at the top of the stairs a cock, a reference to the old city name ‘Kukkut Nakhon’ (the city of cocks). Legend has it that in ancient times a cock was placed at the city gates, to wake up the bodisattvas so they could bless it and bring it unremitting honour.
