There are many important sites within the old city, but this clearly the centre. The story of the three kings and their founding of the city is most interesting and around the square are three interesting museums telling the story of Chaing Mai.

In the Old Town there is a sizeable square with this statue of the three kings, one of which was the founder of Chiang Mai and the other two were his successors. I enjoyed the statues of the kings looking at their heroic poses and considering what this patch of ground must have been like 800 years ago. Civilizations swell,... More

If you are looking for historical information then the museum is packed full of it. Most of the information seems only to be in Thai so a guide may be of some help. Externally the monument is impressive and often there are displays or exhibition stand in the square area in front of the museum. Right in the heart of... More

A little research beforehand allows you to enjoy the significance of the Three Kings Monument to the people of Chiang Mai. This monument celebrates the king who orginally established the city as well as the two kings who succsed him. Nice to visit when in the Old City.

The statue of the Three Kings is nice for a short photo as the founder of the city stands in the middle representing 1 king together with 2 fellow friend kings next to him.

The square is elegant but not worth a special trip. It is in the museum quarter, in the centre of the old city so you may well be passing. Sadly the actual three kings monument does not have an explanatory sign in English.

Really nice atmosphere around here and there is a small cafe at the back where you can sit in the courtyard area. We like to come there if other places are too busy.

Walked up to see this " famous" sight and was totally underwhelmed. This is a big deal locally, as one of the statues is the king who founded Chang Mai and along with him are 2 other kings who were his friends. The statue sits in front of the arts and cultural centre in a large empty square. Information on... More

Went especially to see the three kings monument and was only there about ten minutes to take a few photos as that is all there is to do . If they put some information there in English so tourists could read it would be a lot more interesting, I was very disappointed not to be able to find out on... More
