Fodor's Expert Review October 14 Memorial

The Old City Memorial/Monument/Tomb
Free
The memorial honors Thais killed during a student-led uprising against military rule. That revolt began on October 14, 1973, and tributes to people killed in October 1976 and May 1992 in similar protests have also been incorporated. Although most of the inscriptions are written in Thai, the memorial is a sobering sight, especially being so close to the Democracy Monument, which acknowledges the establishment of the constitutional monarchy. Traffic is always whizzing about, the gate is often closed, and there seem to be no regular hours, though there are painting exhibitions at times.
