Not much of interest here, in a poorly maintained local cemetery. There is a canal running alongside it (the opposite side to Chang Klan Road), which has been recently beautified.

Two far more interesting cemeteries are:

The Chiang Mai Foreign Cemetery, next to the Chiangmai Gymkhana Golf and Sports Club, where you will find a statue of Queen Victoria and many interesting head stones, in English.

Khuang Sing Chinese Cemetery is a well maintained Chinese cemetary. This is just off to the left of Route 107 after crossing the first ring road, as you leave Chiang Mai city to the north.

I too was on the way to the Chiang Mai FC fan shop. As it turned out, the shop is located diagonally across from the cemetery. It is just a five minute walk from the night market. Just continue walking down Changklan road in southern direction and keep right when you pass a bakery called “Butter is better” and after a few meters you reach a green(ish) wall with a gate. That is where you enter.

There is no sign in English or Thai calling the place “Chang Klang Cemetery”. And actually that is not the real name of the graveyard. It just happens to be in Chang Klang, a district of Chiang Mai.

The sign next to the gate gives us the right information. It says (translated): “Su-san Islam (Ban Hor) Saeng Ta Wan” or (word by word): “Tomb Islam (Home of the Hor-tribe) Light of the Day”. It probably means: “Light of the Sun, Islam Cemetery (of the Hor-tribe)”
People from the Hor-tribe came in ancient times from Yunnan province in China to Thailand. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

The place looks very neglected as if it is never maintained once a person has been buried. All graves are overgrown with grass and it is difficult to find the way without accidentally stepping on a burial side. The only exceptions were the three or four fresh graves.

Some tomb stones have only Chinese and Arabic characters on it. Others are trilingual, including Thai as well. All bear Muslim symbols. Apparently the graveyard belongs to a local Chinese-Muslim community that consists of the descendants of the aforementioned Hor-tribe. But since I am no expert on anthropology, these are all assumptions based on the words written on the wall. I have never come across a place like this.

Even though in a bad shape, the cemetery is very peaceful. Pay attention while approaching the place for it is very easy to miss.

Note that it is not a sightseeing place! If you happen to go there, dress properly and behave accordingly. I am not even sure if it is ok to walk around and take photos. Well I did, but I made sure to maintain a respectful demeanor throughout my visit.

Was out trying to find the Chiang May FC store, and saw the cemetery on my way back...unlike other religious structures in the area as the main building was out of timber construction, and mostly white
