This old fort can be seen in a few minutes. The garden and river across the road are quite scenic too.

This fortress was built in 1794 during the reign of King Nangklao, to protect the city of Chachoengsao from invasions.

Later, during the reign of King Chulalongkorn, the army used it as its base for suppressing the Ang Yi Rebellion, which consisted of illegal Chinese opium dealers who plundered many areas of the city.

In front of the fort wall is a public park where you can get a scenic view of the Bang Pakong River.

Constructed of bricks and cement, the fort wall stretches from the east to the west with a width of about one metre, a length of about 200 metres and a height of three metres.

I have read that five cannons of different sizes can also be found along the wall, but unfortunately during a recent trip to Chachoengsao I was unable to see either the fortress wall or the cannon because a high green fiberglass fence has been erected along its entire length, and only the tips of top of the wall are visible. There were no signs to explain why, but I assume that renovation work is being done.
