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

In honour of a great king.

Celebrated annually on October 23, the day dedicated to King Chulalongkorn commemorates the anniversary of the death of a major figure in Thai history.

Also known as King Rama V, King Chulalongkorn was the author of numerous reforms and a great political modernisation of the country in the late nineteenth century. His reign was long and was intrinsically associated with the entry of Thailand into the modern age.

Well educated and driven by the study of Western governments, King Chulalongkorn helped his country and his people pass through critical stages: the abolition of slavery, advent of the railroads, establishing a postal service, not to mention the many advances in the fields of education and health.

More symbolically, the abolition of prostration before the king showed his desire to make the population an autonomous and less servile people.

The anniversary of his death is commemmorated throughout the country.
