Impressive statue in a lovely setting
Oct 2019 • Couples
It is more a matter of noting the presence of this memorial as you pass by in this area of town.

There is nothing in English here to provide any information but with all the grand buildings around and the lovely flower garden at the memorials base, it is a pretty enough spot to warrant a deviation and a quick look.

30 year old memorial of local significance
Feb 2018 • Solo
This memorial dates from 1990 and is surrounded by attractive plants and other exotic structures such as a major Wat.

It was not crowded on the baking hot Saturday when I paid it a brief visit.

Really of significance only to Thais.

Easy to reach using a Bangkok water boat, challenging as they are to board and to alight from.

Beautiful statue
Feb 2018 • Solo
If the statue was not surrounded by other beautiful places, it won't be worth seeing. But it is right next to the Royal Reception Pavilion and in front of Wat Ratchanatdaram. Great photo ops.

King Rama III Memorial
The monument of King Rama III was built by the Fine Arts Department in 1990 near the Royal Reception Pavilion in front of Wat Ratchanatdaram. His bronze statue is seated on a throne. The surrounding area is decorated with beautiful plants, with the Royal Reception Pavilion and three minor pavilions known as Sala Rai nearby. There are three more most important landmarks of Bangkok very close to this monument namely Golden Mount Temple just across the road, Democracy Monument at about 300 meters and Loha Prasat Temple just adjacent. It is a beautiful place to visit, if one has time.

Royals think a lot of themselves and have many monuments, roads, streets, buildings, airports and anything else they can think of installed with their name on it.

     Nangklao (Thai: พระบาทสมเด็จพระนั่งเกล้าเจ้าอยู่หัว) or Rama III (31 March 1788 – 2 April 1851) was the third monarch of Siam under the House of Chakri, ruling from 21 July 1824 to 2 April 1851. He succeeded his father, Rama II, as the King of Siam. His succession was unusual according to the traditions[1] because Nangklao was a son of a concubine rather than a queen. His accession was perceived by foreign observers as having usurped the prior claim of Prince Mongkut, who was a legitimate son of Rama II born to a queen, Srisuriyendra. Under the old concept of Thai monarchy, however, a proper king must emulate Maha Sammata in that he must be "elected by the people."[2] Ironically, Prince Mongkut may have later contributed to this misconception, when he feared that his own accession might be perceived by foreign observers as a usurpation.
