The 10-day Festival will be celebrating 156 anniversary of Phra Nakhon Khiri with a range of impressive and fun-filled events, including a spectacular procession, traditional Khon masked dance performances, beauty pageant and Thai folk dance contests, fireworks display, music concerts and stage shows.
Phra Nakorn Khiri, locally known as Khao Wang – Palace Hill, was built under the royal command of King Rama IV on the mountain ranges of Khao Samana or Khao Mahai Sawan. The whole compound comprises royal houses, temples, pagodas, and an observatory. It combines the elegance of Thai, Chinese and western Neo-classic architectural styles. Nowadays, Phra Nakorn Khiri is a historical park and is open to public.
