This statue of the 3 kings is placed in a large, attractive square as you enter town from Chuan Peuk gate. It may not seem that interesting but is a much better sight if you read up first on the 3 kings (the founders of Chiang Mai) and their achievements...after all, they forged an alliance that has lasted some 700...

I had seen this on the list of things to do. We didn't even do pictures it was that boring. But I did use it as a guidepost to get to the next few things on the list, so from that point of view it was helpful.

Lots of people giving it 5 stars but read their reviews, they all say the same thing, it's nothing special, it's small, it's something to see as you walk by. It is all these things, as with nearly all things in Chaingmai now it's not really worth the 12hours bus ride. You can go to far more interesting places, I... More

There is nothing inherently special about this monument but it is replicated all over the north and in the museum, you can learn more about the kings depicted: King Mengrai, the founder of Chiang Mai, his contemporary - and reportedly good friend - King Ramkamhaeng of Sukothai, and King Ngam Muang of Payao.

Part of our Segway tour of old Chiang Mai. Story of the 3 kings of Lao, Lanna and Sukhothai/Ayutthaya coming together in Lanna to forge bonds of peace. Monument is artistic and interesting. Our daughter thought it was great for selfies.

Honestly, I think this attraction drew in more Pokemon GO players than actual tourists. Throughout the day and night, I saw several people gathering around catching pokemons... It's an open space with the Three Kings Monument displayed. Something for you to go up to and enjoy with your own eyes that these were the men that built the Old City... More

Can spot this as you are walking the market on the weekends at night. Not very interesting for me on a solo trip.

...or on your way to the Lanna Folk-life Museum, they are across the street from each other. The House of Photography is behind the Lanna Folk-life Museum if you are interested in photography and in the area. This is a landmark to orient yourself if using a map of the city.

Nothing to do in during the day, you may like to explore the museum here. There are 7 day pass for tourists and it was not expensive. There are 3 session of the museum and the 3 kings monument is the one of it.

I visited in the evening on our way to the Saturday night market. The three kings monument symbolizes Chiang Mai and it is located, roughly at the centre of the walled old city area. The 'Three Kings' -- King Mengrai, the founder of Chiang Mai; King Ramkamhaeng of Sukothai; and King Ngam Muang of Payao. According to legend, the three... More
