Ministry of Defence Building in Bangkok
The Ministry of Defence Building is opposite the Grand Place and next to the Bangkok City Pillar Shrine in the Rattanakosin Island area of Bangkok. Visitors are not permitted inside, however, the front exterior of the building is impressive and well worth taking the time to go to see.
The building, which currently houses Thailand’s Ministry of Defence, was completed in 1884 and originally built as barracks for over 4,000 soldiers. The building was designed by an Italian Architect and has a distinctly European appearance. The building is rectangular with a large central courtyard originally intended to be used for drill practice. These late 19th Century soldiers part of the first full-time professionally employed regiment in Thailand, which was at the time was taking the first steps towards establishing a modern army.
When Thailand’s Ministry of Defence was established in 1887 it took over the building and has had its headquarters located there ever since. In front of building is an impressive display of 63 bronze canons all facing sideways so as to point neither at the Grand Palace or the building itself. The most famous of these canons is the Phaya Tani, which is 2.7 metres long. The Phaya Tani canon was seized from the Sultanate of Pattani in 1786 and was shipped to Bangkok thereafter, along with another canon which fell overboard during the journey.
