Bai Sema (Thai: ใบเสมา) are the boundary stones which designate the sacred area for a phra ubosot (ordination hall) within a Thai Buddhist temple. Phrae town was built next to the Yom River in the 12th century and was part of the Mon kingdom of Haripunchai. In 1443, King Tilokaraj of the neighbouring Lanna kingdom captured the town.
