My local Chiangrai friend told me that the population of Chiangrai city is about 1,3 million people. I don’t know how many muslims are there. But, subhanallah, its mosque – Darul Amman – is as magnificent as Islamic Center in Bangkok. This mosque, I believe, represents a significant number of muslim living in the city whose ancestor, like muslim in Chiangmai, came from Southern China (Yunnan). The front wall of the three-stair mosque is covered with light brown natural stone in brick pattern. Beautiful! But, wait, it seems that the name is so familiar… Aha! Remember the mosque on Petchaburi soi 7 in Bangkok that we know well? That’s also Darul Aman. Alright, below are the pictures of the mosque and halal food shop close to it. The map of the mosque is available in far below. Hope this is useful for you brothers and sisters.
