    The Chiang Mai National Museum is holding an exhibition between now and December 30 to celebrate the 600th year anniversary of the birth of the great Lanna King, Phra Chao Tilokarat, whose name translates as ‘God of the 3 Worlds’.


    The exhibition will also commend HRH Princess Maha Sirindhorn for her support of Thailand’s art and culture, and is sponsored with a budget of 60,000 baht by CMU’s Fine Arts department.

    The focus is on three aspects of King Tilokarat’s reign from 1441- 1487, a period which is regarded as the Golden Age of Lanna.; his role in the reform and development of the political and administrative sectors and his military leadership, his advancement of the Buddhist faith, including his hosting of the World Buddhist Council in 1477 at Wat Jed Yod, rebuilt especially for the occasion, and his sending of monks to study the Dhamma in Sri Lanka, and his contribution to Lanna arts through the integration of the exquisite Sukothai style.

    The exhibition is open to the public Wednesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m; entry fees are 20 baht for Thais and 100 baht for foreigners, with free entry to members of the monkhood and students in uniform.

    After it closes, educational institutions and organisations are invited to display the exhibits at their premises.

    For more information, please call on 053-221-308/053-408-568.
