King Taksin the Great Statue review Rate it

Cast in 1951 by Silpa Bhirasri, this equestrian statue (a lucky 9m tall by 9m long) marks Thonburi's founder, who re-united Siam after the sack of Ayutthaya in 1767. Brandishing a sword and Stetson-esque hat, he directs a vehicular armada through daunting gridlock from a park within a roundabout. Rites are held here on the date of his coronation (28 Dec).
