I pass by this place and my local thai friend tell me about this landmark. It’s quite nice for thailand to have exact monuments for democracy. I hope the political situation in thailand will also improve soon

It is a public monument in the city center of Bangkok, Actually it is a traffic roundabout on Ratchadamnoen Avenue. This huge landmark chronicles part of Thailand's modern history. This place is not far from Khosan road.

The Democracy Monument is located at the roundabout on Ratchadamnoen Street in the Phra Nakhon district of Bangkok. The monument commemorates the 1932 Siamese coup d'état that led to the establishment of a constitutional monarchy.

The statue depicts a palm leaf manuscript box containing the Thai constitution. At the top, two offering bowls were placed over a round turret made of copper - 3 meters high and 4 tons in weight. The constitution is symbolically guarded by four wing-like structures with bas-reliefs and tiny fences surrounding the monument. The wings are 24 meters high. This is also the radius of the base of the monument. This means that the 1932 coup took place on June 24.

The monument looks impressive and should not be missed when walking along Ratchadamnoen Avenue.

Had our last night roaming around Bangkok. A must-see sight to visit when you're just around the city. Interesting sculptures.

This huge sculpture dominates its area and draws appreciative eyes to its aesthetic sculptural merit as you scurry across the wide boulevard. It birthed with the high hopes of the 1932 revolution that ended the absolute monarchy. But today the symbolism is bittersweet as Thailand struggles once again under military rule. To get the most of the experience detour to nearby Thammasat University and view the history of this as long as that of the Professor who started it all. Only then will this fine monument have some context.

It is a symbol of the revolution of 1932 – a coup d’état that established the constitutional monarchy. We passed to several times during our stay in Bangkok.

It is especially nice at night when it is illuminated.

If you are thinking of wandering around in areas nearby Khaosan Road, then don't miss to visit this place at night. It is also very close to Giant Swing, Both of these sights may seem very interested to people fond of night photography. It will take just few minutes from Khaosan Road.

It’s a large monument in the center of a round about. It gets lit up at night so after dark is a great time to walk past it as well.
