King Taksin Monument

The King Taksin Monument in Bangkok is a very popular local monument which is open every day of the week. The Monument of King Taksin the Great has been built in the center of Bangkok as a memorial site to commemorate King Taksin passing Chachoengsao after the fall of Ayutthaya in 1767 to restore Thailand’s independence. This is a very important monument for Thai people during the demonstrations in Thailand. The new and current shrine was constructed in 1988.

There are a number for other monuments in Bangkok such as the Democracy monument and the Victory Monument which is also very popular with local residents. The Dhonburi Rajabhat University is also close by the monument.
