    The Three Kings Monument is in front of the old provincial hall very close to the centre of the old city. The bronze monument portrays men standing in 14th century royal costume and represent Phaya Ngam Meuang, Phaya Mengrai and Phaya Khun Ramkhamhaeng, the three northern Thai-Lao kings most associated with Lanna history. The monument has become a local shrine where local residents offer flowers, incense and candles in return for blessings.

    three kings monument

    It's one of the few monuments beside temples that I have seen around, and it's called the Three Kings Monument. The center statue is of Praya Meng Rai, on his right you have Praya Ruang and his left Praya Ng-am Muang. I read somewhere that these three kings are revered in Chiang Mai, but I have failed to find out why. Anyway, as you probably have guessed, Praya means King
