Attraction Details :

King Rama III Memorial is situated near the royal pavilion for holding ceremony on the corner of Ratchadamnoen Avenue Road in front of Wat Ratchanaddaram. The Fine Arts Department was in charge of the establishment of the memorial in 1990 owing to the Rattanakosin Project Committee’s idea that even though Wat Ratchanaddaram was constructed in line with King Rama III’s intention, there was still no monument of the king in this temple to commemorate his honor and to appreciate his grace to Thailand. King Rama III had performed a number of important duties for Thai people in many aspects such as economy, country defense, education, international relations, and religion. For Thailand’s economy, he adopted tax system in order to increase more revenues and more stability to the country. For Thailand’s defense, he had more fortifications constructed in the city; whereas, for religion, he took a great care of Buddhism. Rattanakosin Project Committee, therefore, viewed the establishment of the memorial in the temple as a good idea. The memorial was cast in bronze and was 1.5 times bigger than the real size of the king. It was built on the movable throne with two level of supporting pedestal made of marble. Behind the memorial is the background of Phra Viman (the dwelling place), which is considered as King Rama III’s emblem, covering with glazed porcelain tiles. The front of the background is made of plain marble, while the back of it is the inscription of the king’s history on the marble. The floor that supports the pedestal is made of granite, including the tree pots in the corner. The memorial is under the responsibility of the Fine Arts Department and was sculpted by Mr. Suporn Sirasongkroh from the Fine Arts Department’s Handcraft Office. This place is decorated with various types of flowers and ornamental plants. There are the king’s pavilion, used for welcoming his royal guests, and three surrounding pavilions. King Rama III Memorial is, therefore, a very important place for Thai people to pay their respect and show their appreciation to the king’s sacrifices and achievements which lead to Thailand’s stability, progress, and development.
