Covering 25 rai (4 hectares), the garden was created with support from the Tourism Authority of Thailand and was opened to the public in 1992. The climate in the area is quite different from the rest of the country and so it is possible to grow a range of plants from different environments. Throughout the year, flowers adorn this hillside, making the Mae Fah Luang Garden one of the brightest and most colorful sites in Thailand.
At the center of the garden is a statue of children climbing on top of each other, forming a human pyramid that reaches up to the sky. The creation of one of Thailand's leading artists: Misiem Yipintsoi, the statue is called 'Continuity'. Her Majesty believed that continuity was the success of any endeavor and so the statue was given the name 'Continuity'. Today, it stands as a symbol for the efforts of the Princess Mother to improve the lives of the people of Thailand. The garden brings substantial income to the area, directly as job opportunities for the locals, and indirectly as a tourist destination.
