60th Anniversary of the King's Accession to the Throne

Photos on this page show several of the arches under construction for the June celebrations of the King's reign. Bangkok Post reports that 31 arches are being erected along Ratchadamnoen Avenue for the event.

Anyone who was here for the 1996 anniversary will remember the spectacular arches erected for that occasion. The 1996 celebrations included a series of commemorative arches in various architectural styles--many based on fantastic Thai mythological themes.
