Ancient Siam

The Ancient City in Samut Prakan (Muang Boran)

According to Thai cosmology, Sumeru Mountain is considered the pillar of the world as well as the center of the universe. The mountain, supported by Anondha fish, stays above the surface of the water. It is the residence of spirits ranging from deities in heaven to devils in hell. Each of them is distinguished by wisdom and morality.

On the top of the lofty mountain is the heaven called Tavatimsa where Trai Trueng City is located.

Sumeru Mountain is surrounded by an ocean, called Nathi Si Thandorn, while the Himaphanta Forest and Anodat Pond are at the foot of the mountain.
