Rama V Memorial

Immortalised excellence

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars

This statue of King Rama V on horseback is the first monument to ever be dedicated to a Thai King.

Built in 1908 to honour the 40th anniversary of Rama V's coronation the statue sits outside the Ananta Samakhom Palace.

The statue is highly revered by the Thai people and there is a seeming constant procession of visitors coming to lay offerings at the base of the statue.

A trip expressly to see the statue is not necessary, but if you are visiting Dusit Park stopping by to take in the view of the statue and the Palace in the background offers a very regal view.

More details
How to get there: Located just outside of the Ananta Samakhom Palace. Buses 5, 18, 56, 70, 72, 503 and 515, all pass within a reasonable walking distance.
