5 Historical & Cultural Spots You Should Visit in Bangkok

Phra Sumen Fort is the last one of two forts at present day that still remains from the total of fourteen forts that were built in the reign of King Rama 1. It was made from bricks coated with cement in octagon shape. Its front side faces towards Bang Lamphu Canal. The basements of the fort and the wall are made to be wide flattened bases and are situated 2 metres under the ground. It’s a 3-storey tower and has 3 staircases inside the fort. It also has earthwork and a shelter that protects the ammunition. In the middle of the fort, there are 38 rooms for ammunition and weaponry storage. However, the 7 angle-shaped battle tower and the roof tumbled down during the reign of King Rama 5 and King Rama 7.
