Bhumibol Adulyadej (Thai: ภูมิพลอดุลยเดช; 5 December 1927 – 13 October 2016), conferred with the title King Bhumibol the Great in 1987 (officially conferred by King Vajiralongkorn in 2019), was the ninth monarch of Thailand from the Chakri dynasty, titled Rama IX. Reigning since 9 June 1946, he was the world's longest-reigning current head of state from the death of Emperor Hirohito of Japan in 1989 until his own death in 2016, and is the third-longest verified reigning sovereign monarch in world history after King Louis XIV and Queen Elizabeth II, reigning for 70 years and 126 days. During his reign, he was served by a total of 30 prime ministers beginning with Pridi Banomyong and ending with Prayut Chan-o-cha.

King Bhumibol is respected and revered by most Thais. In 1957, the overthrow of his then government was justified with allegations of lèse majesté, which is offence against the dignity of the monarch, punishable under Thai law. Although Bhumibol did invite public criticism in a 2005 speech, the lèse majesté laws have not been revoked by the Thai parliament.

Forbes estimated Bhumibol's fortune-including property and investments managed by the Crown Property Bureau (CPB), a unique body that is neither private nor government-owned-to be US$30 billion in 2010, and he was the leader of the magazine's list of "The World's Richest Royals" from 2008 to 2013. In May 2014, Bhumibol's wealth was once again listed as US$30 billion. Officially the assets managed by the CPB are owned by the crown as an institution, not Bhumibol Adulyadej as an individual.

Mahakan Fort

Centered is Mahakan Fort. Right of it The Wat Saket is visible (Golden Mount).

Mahakan Fort is the easternmost fort of the Rattanakosin Walls, currently located next to the Phan Fa Lilat Bridge on Ratchadamnoen Avenue and the junction of Klong Maha Nak (beginning of the Saen Saep Canal) and Klong Rop Krung (13°45′20″N 100°). 30′20″ E). The fort, also octagonal in shape and three levels, has a diameter of 38 meters and a height of 19 meters, measured to the roof of the octagonal tower. Mahakan Fort has rectangular battlements on both the lower and upper levels. The fort and walls were restored in 1981, on the occasion of the city's bicentennial.

The fort was built at the end of the XVIII century, during the reign of Rama I, and was part of the defensive structures of Bangkok. The entire complex of defensive structures included artificial canals Yuang Lampu and Ong Ang, at the intersection of which the fort was built. all these structures were designed to protect the capital from the Burmese armies, who managed, long before that, in 1767, to destroy Ayutthaya, the previous capital of Thailand.

Mahakan Fort

Near Mahakan Fort, between the city wall and the canal, is an old community whose wooden houses serve as examples of historic vernacular architecture. The community has been fighting for decades against eviction by the BMA, which intends to turn the area into a public park. While agreements were made in the 2000s to preserve and develop the area as a living museum, deals later fell through and the BMA began demolishing the houses, whose owners were compensated in 2016. Other residents still resisted eviction, as of 2017, and hopes remained that some of the buildings could be saved. As of April 2018, all remaining residents have been evicted and plans are underway to demolish the remaining buildings. However, an initiative was announced on the Mahakan Fort Community Facebook page to create an online database of the Mahakan Fort community and collect information about the site. In July 2018, the BMA completely developed the area around Mahakan Fort to become a public park and the fort to become a museum.

Bangkok Golden Mount Wat Saket Temple

Wat Saket Ratcha Wora Maha Wihan (Thai: วัดสระเกศราชวรมหาวิหาร) is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand. Located in the eastern part of the Old City (Phra Nakhon district), opposite Wat Ratchanadda, overlooks Bori Phat Street.

The temple dates back to the Ayutthaya era when it was called Wat Sakae. King Rama I renovated the temple and renamed it Wat Saket. During the reign of King Rama III, a gold-plated chedi was built on a high artificial hill, and because of this, the title Chedi Phu Kau Thong (Golden Mount, ภูเขาทอง) was added to the temple. The mountain represents one of the symbols of Buddhism, Mount Meru. However, the construction was unsuccessful due to the weakness of the ground, and the mountain sank. Repairs were carried out under King Rama V, after which the temple was again renamed Suvannabanphot - the same as the Golden Mountain, only in Sanskrit. This building has become a popular attraction in Bangkok, however, the rest of the temple is less visited.

At the end of the XIX century, wat was used for cremation, mainly by the poor.

Before the construction of the Wat Arun temple (79 meters), the Golden Mount, 76 meters high, was the tallest building in Bangkok.

Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall

The Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall is a former reception hall within Dusit Palace in Bangkok, Thailand. It now serves as a museum and is from time to time employed for certain state occasions.

One year after the completion of the Amphorn Satharn Villa within the Dusit Palace in 1906, King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) commissioned the construction of a reception hall to replace the one built during the reign of King Mongkut (Rama IV).

King Chulalongkorn died in 1910 and the building was finally completed in 1915.

The building in Italian Renaissance and Neo Classic style was commissioned to the architects Mario Tamagno and Annibale Rigotti. Marble from Carrara, Italy, and other foreign materials were used. Italian sculptor Vittorio Novi, who would later also work on the Mahadthai udthit Bridge (สะพานมหาดไทยอุทิศ), was employed with his nephew Rudolfo Nolli.

The Throne Hall is a two storey construction with a large dome (49.5 m. high) in the centre, surrounded by six smaller domes. The domes and walls are covered with paintings by Professor Galileo Chini and Carlo Riguli depicting the history of the Chakri Dynasty, from the first to the sixth reign.


Black serial number.

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej (King Rama IX) ascended the throne on June 9, 1946. During the early part of his reign there were a large number of counterfeit notes of 8th Series.

The reasons were that the designs were not intaglio printed and the printing was carried out in a hurry, causing a lack of quality. The Ministry of Finance thus permitted the Bank of Thailand to place orders for banknotes with Thomas de la Rue after learning that the company was ready to resume operations.

Banknotes 9th Series, had have been in circulation for over twenty years. For this reason, people are quite familiar with the colors of each type and denomination, making it difficult to forge. It can be assumed that the colors the 9th Series are the standard for current Thai banknotes.
