The iconic Three Kings Monument (Anusawari Sam Kasatn in Thai language) is located in front of Chiang Mai Cultural Center, in the area where the former rulers of Chiang Mai built their palaces. The monument was constructed in memory of the alliance of three northern Thai-Lao kings who made a great contribution to the founding of Chiang Mai: King Mengrai, the founder of Chiang Mai and other two kings who worked together to build the city.
The sculpture of the three kings wearing 14th-century royal gard has been something of icon representing Chiang Mai. Local people come regularly to pay homage to their beloved king with offerings of flowers, incense, and candles. There are various commemorative activities held in the square in front of the Three Kings Monument.
