The Great Beloved King

(This is the Great Beloved King in Dusit Palace Royal Ground.)

Phra Bat Somdet Phra Poramintharamaha Chulalongkorn Phra Chunla Chom Klao Chao Yu Hua (Thai: พระบาทสมเด็จพระปรมินทรมหาจุฬาลงกรณ์ฯ พระจุลจอมเกล้าเจ้าอยู่หัว), or Rama V (20 September 1853–23 October 1910) was the fifth monarch of Siam under the House of Chakri. He was known to the Siamese of his time as Phra Phuttha Chao Luang (พระพุทธเจ้าหลวง - The Royal Buddha). He is considered one of the greatest kings of Siam. His reign was characterized by the modernization of Siam, immense government and social reforms, and territorial cessions to the British Empire and French Indochina. As Siam was threatened by Western expansionism, Chulalongkorn, through his policies and acts, managed to save Siam from being colonized. All his reforms were dedicated to Siam’s insurance of survival in the midst of Western colonialism, so that Chulalongkorn earned the epithet Phra Piya Maharat (พระปิยมหาราช - The Great Beloved King).

Zodiac sign@golden mount

(Click on the photo if you wish to enlarge)
Many Thai people still follow the 12 Year Lunar Cycle. It probably originated from Chinese Astrologers in about the 6th century AD and was adopted by many Buddhist countries in Asia,including Thailand,where it is an integral part of Thai culture.They believe that there are 12 auspicious animals, one for each of the 12 years, and that the people born in each of those years will have certain characteristics of those animals.Legend has it that on the Buddhas last day on this Earth he invited all the animals but only 12 came, so to reward them he named a year after each of the twelve.
2009 is the year of the Ox. 2010 will be the Year of the Tiger.

(there are a stair up to rooftop beside bookshelf of dharma books)

Khon Costumes

(Taken on Wednesday, 12 August 2009)

Khon(Thai: โขน) is the most stylised form of Thai dance. It is performed by troupes of non-speaking dancers, the story being told by a chorus at the side of the stage. Choreography follows traditional models rather than attempting to innovate.Most khon performances feature episodes from the Ramakien. Costumes are dictated by tradition.Main characteristic of Khon is that the performers, except angle, leading male and female performers, have to wear masks
