Three Kings Monument, Chiang Mai

2.8
In the center of town stands Three Kings Monument, a bronze sculpture signifying the alliance between the three kings of northern Thailand to design the city. This popular monument is an icon of Chiang Mai and is spiritually important for locals. Be sure to remove your shoes before approaching the attached shrine, as the locals do when making devotional offerings, and be careful of the hot floor around midday. If you have time, also check out the city's art and cultural center while in the area.

  • I understand the significance of the 3 Kings from Google. It would have been nice to have some sort of info about the site available.  more »
  • The monument is located in the old town, on a site. There are Thais who come here to pray. Except for the monument, there is nothing special to see. If you close is ok, but please no great expectations.

  • The monument is not a must see, but it's quite much in the middle of the city so you can't really miss it. The interesting part are the people coming and going...so take your time, sit a look.  more »

  • Quiet & peaceful place set in the heart of the old city. There is an inner serenity one can feel if only they sit quietly and are open to receive. Enjoy
  • 1. It's kind of like a square to gather people and having functions. 2. Main attraction is the 3 kings statues. 3. A handy landmark (gathering point), if you get separated with your friends. 4. Interestingly, it's between 2 important museums.
  • Nice big square, the monument itself is tiny in comparison. It's peaceful without the crowd! I wouldn't come out of the way to visit.
  • Beautiful place with lots of businesses and restaurants around. Just make sure to find a good parking spot to start exploring if you’re driving or use a taxi that will cost 30 baht per person. Anyway this a good reference point to explore the old town of Chiang Mai.
  • The monument is a great place to visit for a taste of Chiang-Mai history. There is a great historic temple adjacent to the monument and I recommend a visit. A great place for an evening stroll.
