Three Kings Monument

Memorial of Chiang Mai's founding

Save to my Account

Located right in the centre of Chiang Mai’s Old City and surrounded by a spacious square, this monument commemorates an alliance of three leaders. King Mengrai, who founded the city in 1296, is in the centre of the monument and is flanked by his allies, King Ramkhamhaeng and King Ngam Muang.

The alliance that Mengrai forged with these leaders of neighbouring kingdoms allowed his own Kingdom of Lanna to flourish in its early years. The square is often empty during the day unless there is a special ceremony taking place, and shady trees and benches make it a relaxing spot to rest.
