"Chulalongkorn Day"
2006-10-23

 

History
"Chulalongkorn Day" or "Piyamaharaj Day", which they say in Thai, is celebrated on 23rd October of every year. It is the day when King Chulalongkorn, or King Rama V, died.
King Rama V (1853-1910) was one of the most important kings in the past in Thailand. The most important thing he did was abolish slavery but he also did many other reforms in order to modernize the country.

King Rama V’s long reign of 42-years was a busy era of full-scale reform and the emergence of Thailand into the modern age. He learned the systems of Western Governments, made friends with major powers such as Britain, France, America and Russia and sent the royal children to be educated in the West. It seems he was prepared to learn from the West while at the same time, resisting domination by the major powers. Above all, he was the first Thai monarch who travelled widely: to neighbouring countries in Asia and to Europe twice. Wherever he went, he was impressed by the hospitality and respect shown to him by the Royalty of the various countries.

His death on October 23, 1910 was a great loss to the entire nation as he was one of the most honoured and beloved kings who were often called “Somdej Phra Piyamaharaj”. Moreover, Thai people also believed in the King’s miraculous power of bringing good luck and prosperity to the person who pays respect to him.

Celebration
Also in Utanede, in the Thai Pavilion they celebrated the memory of King Chulalongkorn on October 23. Lots of flowers and gifts were given to the statue of King Chulalongkorn.

"The King Chulalongkorn Day" 2006-07-19

 

Visit in Utanede
July 19, 1897, King Chulalongkorn of Siam (present-day Thailand) visited Sweden and Ragunda municipality. He had got an invitation from the Swedish/Norwegian King Oscar II to the International Art and Industry Fair in Stockholm and he accepted.

Northern Sweden
King Oscar also wanted him to see other parts of Sweden than Stockholm, and since the Swedish sawmill industry was interesting for King Chulalongkorn, he chose the middle part of northern Sweden. There was beautiful scenery with bright summer nights and impressive waterfalls. King Chulalongkorn was also interested in the modern Swedish traffic, both on water and on land. Memorial Building
Almost exactly one hundred year later, the construction of a memorial building in honour of the King was commenced.

Loved and admired King
In 1868, King Chulalongkorn ascended the throne of Siam. He was a loved and admired King, not least because he abolished slavery in his native country. King Chulalongkorn was the fifth king of his dynasty and was therefore called ”Rama V Chulalongkorn of Siam”.
