Thanks for the coordinates, too bad Google Earth has no hires imagery for that area yet, so it is just some blurred houses and fields. I wasn't aware that Phana dates back to a Mueang - I have a list of all the Mueang in the northeast before the thesaphiban reforms, but haven't found the time to work through it in detail yet as my Thai reading is still far from perfect. I will mention this post on my blog next week, do you mind if I "borrow" a photo from here?

Very interesting, the drawing of the new shrine looks like it would be of a similar size as the city pillar shrines in the provincial capitals, thus quite big for a small town like Phana. As I am collecting locations of these Lak Mueang, a map with the location of the original pillar and the site of the planned shrine would have been a nice addition to the post.

Do I guess right that this award was done by the Department of Local Administration, the part of the Ministry of Interior responsible for the local administrative units? Tomorrow I will post a short article pointing to this post on my blog, as I write on the administrative subdivisions of Thailand.
