The Royal Monument of King Chulalongkorn and King Vajiravudh

In 1987, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of its establishment, Chulalongkorn University requested permission from His Majesty the King to create a monument depicting King Chulalongkorn and Crown Prince Maha Vajiravudh, who later became King Vajiravudh. The statues of both monarchs were placed on a high platform in front of the University’s Main Auditorium. On the same occasion, the University initiated the tradition of freshmen paying respect and taking an oath in front of the monument as part of their initiation rites on becoming a Chulalongkorn University student. Graduates, after the graduation ceremony, will also pay homage to the monument to mark their farewell to their University life.
