Thammasat University review Rate it

The country's second most prestigious university (after Chulalongkorn) dates from 1932. A statue of its founder, statesman Pridi Bhanomyong, sits in front of its drill bit-shaped tower, near a Chinese stone lion bedecked with offerings. Free-thinking Thammasat students were the leading demonstrators (and victims) of the 14 October 1973 and 6 October 1976 incidents, recorded on two memorials inside the gate on Thanon Deuan Tula (October Road). However, in 2002, all but postgraduate students moved to the Rangsit campus, thus somewhat muting the activist spirit of this political crucible.
