Traffic Circle Landmark

Looming from a traffic circle within Rajadamnoen Boulevard, the Democracy Monument honors the 1932 Siamese Revolution, the coup that ushered Thailand from centuries of absolute rule by kings to a constitutional monarchy. Four "wings" rear from bas-relief-decorated bases to nearly 80 feet: 24 meters, to be exact, which symbolizes the June 24 date of the revolution. A copy of Thailand's first constitution, signed that very day, lies in the pedestal squared off by the wings. Commissioned seven years after the coup, the Democracy Monument owes its design to the Italian architect Corrado Feroci, who changed his name to Silpa Bhirasi after becoming a Thai citizen.
