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.

    The interesting part of this monument is the story of two of the King's depicted. King Mengrai founded both Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, his life story deserves to be a Hollywood epic. The King of Sukhothai is another extraordinary and fascinating character.

    An important monument, but there wasn't much information over there in English about the details. Right in the center of the old City

    What you see is what you get. The Three Kings are a neat cultural icon of Chiang Mai. Come here and take a selfie before seeing the Lanna Folklife Museum across the road.
