Phokhun Ngam Mueang Monument (อนุสาวรีย์พ่อขุนงำเมือง) is located at the Mueang Phayao Municipality Public Park (Suan Somdet Ya 90) in front of Kwan Phayao. Phokhun Ngam Mueang was the 9th king of Phu Kamyao Town during the very prosperous period of 1258 – 1298. The king drank the oath of friendship water together with Phokhun Mengrai of Chiang Mai Kingdom and Phokhun Ramkhamhaeng of Sukhothai Kingdom. The three kings conducted this oath-taking ceremony by the Ing River, within the compound of the Phayao Fresh-water Fishing Station nowadays. Phokhun Ngam Mueang has been known as a person with great might. It has been told that anywhere he went to, “the sunlight was not hot, while the rain did not fall. When he wanted the sun to come out, it became shiny, but when he wanted the sunlight to disappear, the cloud came to obstruct it”. Therefore, he was called “Ngam Mueang”. On 5 March of every year, a ceremony will be conducted to worship Phokhun Ngam Mueang.
