Why King Naresuan Stupa is special ?

The pagoda is located in the city of Chiang Dao, Mueng Ngai. Somdet Phra Naresuan Maharat was one of the Siam’s most revered monarchs known for his ability to fight against enemies and his campaigns to free Siam from Burmese rules. He marched an army to defeat the enemies in Thailand therefore; the locals from where he had his stopover built the monument or pagoda to honor the victory of King Naresuan. The pagoda at Mueng Ngai was built by the locals during the time when King Naresuan had stopover at Mueng Ngai before he and his army marched to Ungwa, Burma in B.E.2147.

My son and I had a really nice time at King Naresuan Stupa. We enjoyed the unique architecture that is considered as the work of local people to contribute to their King Naresuan. We not only admire the beautiful landmark, but also open our mind about Chiangmai historical stories. The more we know about Thailand, the more we love them. Should travel to Chiangmai again, our favourite city. Highly recommend this spot!
