It's a nice monument, worth a quick visit if you're walking around the area and the old city but not overwhelming. It's something worth ticking off the 'to see' list when in Chiang Mai. There are also loads of beautiful temples in and around the old city.

This a lovely setting in the middle of a busy tow.The history of the kings is very interesting so do read up before you go.However sometimes there are art exhibitions and this time the local Transport trainees were practicing. It was great to see how precise the young boys and girls were a credit to them all.

A Monument To the 3 founding King's of Chiang Mai. Not much but a large square with the statue. Interesting story behind them though should you want to Google it. Across the road is the Lanna Folklore Museum.

No doubt it is an important historical monument representing the 3 founding kings of Chiang mai. Today it is an iconic image of Chiang Mai. However there is nothing much to see unless you are visiting the nearby museums.

in a square a block from the main street of the old city. We were a bit disappointed bit it was still a checkmark on the "to-see" list.

In the middle of the old city and really important to the Thai people and so, as such is good to see. However, whether we missed the significance or not, there are other more interesting sights.

This monument is not worth going out of your way for, particularly if you don't know the story of the Three Kings. But there are two museums one behind and one in front, so to combine all three might be worth it.

While walking around old Chiang Mai, this is worth a short visit. The stature is what it says, 3 kings who ruled during the Lanna era in Chiang Mai. There is no fee and it is in front of the Art and Cultural Museum. Within a large courtyard where many times throughout the year festivals and other venues occur.

In front of the Art and Cultural Muzeum, at the center of Chiang Mai Old City, or East of Suan Dok Gate (West) and South of Chang Puak Gate (North). The other are Thapae Gate at the East and Chiang Mai Gate at the South. The 3 Kings are the King Mengrai, King Ramkamhaeng and King Ngam Muang who together... More

Not a very exciting monument but worth ten minutes to read the history of Chiang mai, or to just relax in the nice, quiet square.
