Phra Maha Dhatu Naphamethinidon and Naphaphonphumisiri Pagodas are a beautiful tribute (for their 60th birthdays) to the late beloved King and his Queen ... built by the Thai Air Force over 900 days they are a lasting testament to the love of the Thai people to their King and Queen ... each of the two Pagodas is accessed by a covered escalator going up the hill and with steps to walk down ... the detail of the Pagodas is amazing including the bas reliefs inside the Pagodas and on the surrounding walls ... the gardens are beautiful and well maintained ... there are so many great photo opportunities including the great view of the surroundings valleys and mountains ... ฿300 entrance to Doi Inthanon National Park and ฿40 entrance to Phra Maha Dhatu Naphamethinidon and Naphaphonphumisiri Pagodas ... the view is limited during high smoke conditions

The impressive King and Queen Pagodas are located at an elvation of 2100 metres on Doi Inthanon. Access is through a wide paved road, except the last 10 km had broken bitumen. There is a 40 baht entry fee. Each pagoda is located on a separate hill, surrounded by flower gardens. Access up is via an escalator but steps are the only way down. Not for those with impaired mobility, as there does not appear to be suitable access to the attractions. Worth a visit if you are viewing other attractions in the vicinity, as it is a 1 hour 30 minute drive from Chang Mai.

The main attraction for this wonderful place is King Rama 9s 60th Birthday Anniversary Pagoda and 5 years later Queen Sirikit’s 60th construction - hence Phra Mahathat Naphapholphhumisiri being 5 meters higher than the Queens Naphamethanidon - 60m and 55m. The gardens are taking really good shape and there are lots of English recognised plants because of the cooler climate in the mountains. Well worth visiting.

Soon to be the resting place of the Late King, the Holiest place in Thailand. Beautiful temples and gardens with spectacular views, definitely worth the day trip from Chiang Mai.
