At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A magnificent ceremony to celebrate the anniversary of one of the biggest cities in the world.

On 21 April 1782, at 6.54 am precisely, the pillar representing the foundation of Bangkok was laid! After decapitating King Taksin, Ramathibodi, the new ruler, decided to change his capital and abandoned Thonburi on the other side of the Chao Praya River. Steeped in legend (having sacrificed reptiles on the day of the city’s creation, the Chakri dynasty was cursed...), the birth of Bangkok is celebrated each year by a ceremony near the Grand Palace.
