Entrance Of Lak Mueang

Entrance of Lak Mueang

People wearing a black clothing were seen in front of the entrance

Shot at Lak Mueang in Bangkok, Thailand.

I came to the Palace area which was one of the major tourist attractions in Bangkok. Yet I didn't plan to enter into the Palace itself. The reason I came here was to visit the small hall called Lak Mueang. In the small hall in this photo, the golden pillar was erected to dedicate to the city god.

It was erected by Rama I when he did the relocation of the capital to Bangkok before building his palace. So the pillar was the first architecture built in the city after the capital relocation. The hall was smaller than I expected. When I came here, many people were hanging out around the hall. Most of the visitors wore a black clothing. They took to mourning to the now-dead King.
