The Democracy Monument is located in the center of Bangkok and was set up to commemorate the democratic coup that took place in Thailand on June 24, 1932. This coup overthrew the autocratic monarchy and established a democratic system of constitutional monarchy, so the monument is called the "democracy monument." The design of the Democracy Monument is very distinctive, ingenious and ingenious. A fortress-like building is built in the middle of the stele, with pillars shaped like wings on each side. The wing column is 24 meters high and is 24 meters apart from the fortress-like building, symbolizing the 24th of the coup. There are embossed decorations under each wing column, and the reliefs are carved with a series of activities of the Democratic Party at that time. A constitution is held on the top of the fortress building, showing that the constitution is above all else. The plate is 3 meters high, symbolizing that the coup took place in March of the lunar calendar.
The monument to democracy was built in memory of the coup of 24 June 1932. The fortress is hexahedral, each decorated with a sword, symbolizing the six coup programmes of the Democratic Party, namely independence, stability, equality, freedom, economy and education. The top plate of the fortress-style building holds a constitution that says it's above all else. The monument is built in the middle of the road and is guarded, not accessible, only photographed from a distance.
There is a large monument around the busy island. Pedestrians are not able to get into the monument. Would recommend reading the history of the monument before coming here. There are no plaques depicted here. Taking pictures at night is the best. It is actually a monument to democracy, not a memorial to democracy, which is currently being renovated, in the middle of the main road in downtown Bangkok, near Kaoshan Road.

The centre of all modern Thai political upheaval, the Democracy Monument cuts a forlorn figure amongst the colonial era buildings on Ratchadamernon Ave. The monument itself was, rather ironically, commissioned by a fascist, designed by an Italian and inspired by fascist symbols. It has become the go to place for any political struggle, being the scene of numerous large demonstrations in the last 40 years. In 1973 and 1992 it was the scene of protester deaths in the political movements at the time.
The monument to democracy is spectacular, like some great wings.
