What travelers say:

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.
