(440+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Three Kings Monument and other Chiang Mai attractions using our handy Chiang Mai itinerary planner.

  • Nice to see if you are around the area, I wouldn't go out of my way to see it since theres not much but the monuments  more »
  • This is a commemorative statue depicting three significant kings in Chiang Mai history, located on the edge of a square in front of the museum. It's OK, but there's not much information in non-Thai la...  more »
  • I stopped by to explore the old town. It was so good and relaxed at the cultural centre next to the toilet, the dose had seemed a break. Does not, however, may also drop as a break point that much however, sprawling just to see what the feedback is.

  • An open plaza with a monument of the three kings at the end. An incidental curriousity that merits a walk through when visiting Chiang Mai while making your way to one of the other cultural attractions. It's a place to have your photo taken & to tick off the list, just another site in an already lovely city.
  • In the center of the old city, is this little gem. Wonderful museum behind the monument. (Also, a Hotspot for all you Pokémon Go players)
  • Good place to see and visit to know more about Thai culture. Temples and other tourist things to see at walking distance.
  • This should rank lower on your list of places to see in Chiang Mai. So many more amazing temples & street markets to visit. That is unless your a Pokemon Master, this Three Kings Monument should be your first. Seen no less than 200 people here playing Pokemon GO at any time of day.
  • Not particularly impressive, but nice to see if you know the history regarding these people. I suggest making a very quick photo-stop here while visiting the nearby temples.
