  Democracy Monument
by Blatherwick
 
 

The 24m tall Democracy Monument was made to commemorate Thailand's 1932 switch from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional monarchy. It was here that many Thais were killed protesting against a military coup in 1992. The design is of a large copper tray carrying the constitution, supported by a pedestal.

Address: Thanon Ratchadamnoen Klang
Directions: About 5 minutes east of Khaosan Road. It's in the middle of a really busy traffic circle.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
