founding fathers
Jan 2020
The three kinds monument is found close to the centre of the walled City. This sculpture is of the founding fathers of Chiang Mai Kings Mengrai, Ramkamhaeng and Ngam Muang.

There was a local kids dance event happening in the square in front of it when we were there in January. Tons of proud parents. It was pretty cute! No entrance fees. Good photo Op. Spent maybe 2 mins here.

Nice short stop if you are in the neighbourhood.

three kings
Feb 2020
I really liked the long ribbons hanging from the ceiling. It is best viewed at night during the walking street bazaar. Bring insect repellant due to the still water.

Not really an attraction

Monument does look good and I’m sure has great significance to the Thai people but for a foreigner it’s just a photo and move on.

It’s in a popular area so you will probably walk past it any way have aloof enjoy and move on.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it.

Three Kings is a winner.
Nov 2019
AT the back of this plaza in Chiang Mai is the Three Kings Monument.
It represents King Mengrai, who founded Chiang Mai, King Ramkamhaeng of Sukothai and King Ngam Muang of Payao.
They all stand at the entrance to the Chiang Mai Cultural and Historic Centre like sentinels on the past.
When I saw them the day was very hot and I had learned from past visits to stand off to the left when facing them to take advantage of a little tree shade.
There are also concrete benches there which visitors can gratefully subside on before taking in the scene in front of them.
If the heat becomes too much then there are numerous bars and cafes within 100 metres, many of which have fans or air conditioning, where you can buy a beer, an iced coffee or a variety of fruit juices to cool down.
The monument itself is in the open and offers a good photo opportunity unobscured by any of Thailand's infamous cabling. Worth a visit.

Great historical and cultural area of Chiang Mai. The three kings monument is close to the museum and cultural centre and is a great place to understand the history of the place. Easy to understand with most information in English. Recommend for sure.

Knowledge Centre of Chiangmai!
Aug 2019 • Family
This is our first of 3spots (Tha Pae Gate, Chedi Luang & 3Kings Monument) that we planned to visit. At first, we thought there’s only this monument at this place but to our surprise, there were also museum and culture centre which is very informative in giving us the information of the history of Chiangmai from beginning. If you love history and civilisation of a place, you will definitely love this place!

A lovely monument in Chiang Mai

The Three Kings grace the entrance to the Chiang Mai Cultural and Historic Center. I like the playful way in which they are depicted, and it's a good place for photos.

The symbol of Chiang Mai!
Jul 2018 • Family
This is the icon of Chiang Mai. The monument stands proudly in the midst of a large courtyard of the Old Provincial Hall. It depicts King Mengrai, the founder of Chiang Mai, and his two friends, King Ngam Muang of Payao and King Ramkamhaeng of Sukhothai. Jointly these three designed and laid the foundations of this city in the 1200’s. The monument is caste in bronze. The locals revere it like a shrine and lay offerings of flowers, candles and incense. We went there to see the early morning Alms giving to the Monks activity.

The monument of the three stands close to the center of the city wall in front of today's art and cultural center. It shows the three kings who jointly founded Chiang Mai.
