The laterite wall around the city is 880 meters long, with gates on all four sides. The city area is about 641 rai 1 ngan and 65 tarangwa (6.25 rai = 1 hectare).

The south wide of the wall winds along the Kwae Noi river, there is an embankment of earth on each of the other inner sides of the wall, the outer sides are enclosed with seven moats and ramparts. These moats and ramparts were probably constructed for the water control system as well as for fortification.

There are also six ponds in the ancient city which were possibly used for religious and irrigation purposes.
