Near the summit of Doi Inthanon are 2 huge pagodas – one dedicated to the King on his 60th birthday (December 5th 1987), and the second dedicated to the Queen on her 60th birthday (August 12th 1992). The pagodas house holy relics.

As well as being quite spectacular within themselves, the pagodas are a great vantage point for views across the valley and are surrounded by ornamental gardens.
The interiors are decorated with mosaic; the King’s pagoda with simple gold bodhi leaf motif and the Queen’s pagoda with scenes from the Buddha’s life.
