If you're in the vicinity of the Marble Temple, it's worth walking the short distance around the corner to see the attractive equestrian statue of King Chulalongkorn (also known as King Rama V).

King Chulalongkorn was a great reforming monarch and was responsible for much of the modernisation that took place in Thailand during his long reign from 1868 to 1910. There's a great webpage about the King on the website of the university that bears his name:


Address: Thanon U-Thong, Dusit
