- Three Kings Monument
The Three Kings Monument comprises statues of important Northern Thai Kings: King Mengrai, the founder of Chiang Mai, King Ramkhamhaeng of Sukhothai, and King Ngam Mueang of Phayao. The monument is located in front of the Old Provicial Hall that has since been converted into an arts and culture museum. The square in front of the monument is the historical center of Chiang Mai and the original site of the city pillar, located at the erstwhile Wat Sadao Muang, the "Temple of the Navel of the City". Many festivals take place in the square and it's a popular skateboarding venue for the city's youth.
