    This version, yes but the original version was issued in 1961. I was just a baby.

    Nice to hear from you again.

    Buddhaisawan Throne Hall was built in the reign of King Rama I (1782 – 1809) by his younger brother (Prince Maha Surasinghanat) who was appointed the Front Palace, the title of the heir. It was first intended to be used as a place for performing royal ceremonies such as the Royal New Year ceremony and etc.

    In 1795, the Prince brought back the second most important Buddha image (after the Emerald Buddha) named Buddha Sihing from Chiangmai and enshrined it at this Throne Hall.

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows the Throne Hall with the Phra Buddha Sihing in the reign of King Rama VII (1925 – 1935).

    shows bird festival in Pattani Province in 1959.

    The bird is mythical called Hatsadiling. It is considered to be the size of a house, with the head and body of a lion, trunk and tusks of an elephant, the comb of a cock, and the wings of a bird.

    The bird was said to inhabit the legendary forest of Himavanta. Legend says that each of them possesses the strength of five elephants.

    The photo below shows the parade of the same festival.

    The Ngiao rebellion also called the Phrae City Rebellion or the Shan rebellion, was an uprising of Tai Yai (Shan, historically known in Thai as Ngiao) people against Siamese rule, in what is now Phrae Province in Northern Thailand between 25 July and 14 August in 1902. It arose as resistance to centralizing reforms initiated by King Rama V, particularly the levying of taxes and the adoption of provincial administration system, as well as the partitioning of territory with the British, which forced the Shan to adopt either British or Siamese nationality.

    In the morning of 25 July 1902, rebels attacked and looted the town of Phrae, killing over twenty government officials including a royal commissioner. The rebellion was soon quelled by troops from Bangkok led by Chao Phraya Surasakmontri, as well as Siamese troops commanded by British and Danish officials. Ten rebel leaders were executed. Sixteen were taken to Bangkok for imprisonment.

    The ruler of Phrae, escaped into exile in Luang Phrabang, Laos. The rebellion continued onward as an insurgency until May 1904 and spanned across Northern Siam.

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows Princess Wiengchuen, a daughter of the ruler of Phrae whose husband (the ‘in-law’) was supposed to be appointed to become the next ruler of Phrae if the rebellion had not happened.

    Fearing of the consequences and the wrongful misunderstanding from Siamese government, they both took lives by drinking poison.

    ^The Army installation in Lampang is now called Fort (Kai) Surasak Montri. I have heard that he was the "father" of the modern RTA. Local lore has it that Lampang resident and timber wallah Louis Leonowens (son of Anna) was one of the British commanders sent to quell the Shan Rebellion. He was commissioned as a Captain in the Royal Cavalry and the trading company bearing his name still exists. His old house in Lampang can still be visited but, sadly, is not very well maintained.

    The Bangkok National Museum is located on the compound that used to house the Bowon Sathan Mongkon Palace or the Front Palace. It was located right in front of the Royal Palace. The place was once the residence of the figures held the exalted position of being second to the king. The palace’s main attraction was the Phutthai Sawan Royal Residence, which held Phra Phutta Sihing, a revered Buddha statue from Sri Lanka, as well as ancient paintings depicting the life of Buddha.
