Honoring King Chulalongkorn of Thailand

3 August 2023

Today, representatives from the Thailand Embassy graciously undertook the task of cleaning the statue of the esteemed former king of Thailand, King Chulalongkorn, which stands in Asia House’s courtyard.

King Chulalongkorn reigned as a revered monarch over Siam (present-day Thailand) from 1868 to 1910. As one of Thailand’s greatest kings, he spearheaded critical reforms and modernization initiatives, notably abolishing slavery, enhancing education, and centralizing administration. Amid the pressures of colonialism, King Chulalongkorn adeptly safeguarded Thailand’s independence. His visionary leadership and unwavering commitment to the welfare of his people have left a profound and enduring impact, rendering him a cherished symbol of progress and enlightenment in Thai history.

In 1873, H. N. Andersen settled in Bangkok, where he served King Chulalongkorn diligently until he established the esteemed firm Andersen and Co. in 1884.

We, at Asia House, are delighted to continue fostering this cherished relationship with the Thailand Embassy.
