Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Most locals go there to pay respect to the ancient hero, King Naresuan and his brother and sister, all of whom have sacrified their lives in ancient wars with Myanmar. Their statues are adorned with flowers and incents regularly.

King Naresuan the Great is one of the most highly revered Siamese kings, renown for his battles with the invading Burmese. He is the hero of an epic Thai movie, much loved and repeatedly viewed by Thais.

There is a problem because there are many shrines to King Naresuan in Thailand, including at Phitsanulok, his birthplace, which is 210 km from Mae Sot.

Many tourists have visited the Shrine of King Naresuan in Mae Sot, and because there is no English signage, have assumed they are visiting the Shrine of King Taksin the Great, who succeeded King Naresuan.

Some of them have even posted incorrect reviews on TripAdvisor and mix up photographs of King Naresuan and King Taksin.

There is a very simple way to tell the difference between the two kings. King Naresuan is almost always depicted in portraits and statuary without a hat and he has a flat top hair style.

King Taksin is almost always depicted wearing a pointed conical helmet.
