Mallika City

History

In the reign of King Nangklao (Rama III), 1824-1851 A.D., it is estimated that one-third of Siamese population was slaves. Because of economic conditions, a large number of people sold themselves into slavery. Children born of slave parents were automatically enslaved; called household slaves. To free themselves, slaves needed to pay off their redemption price, or else, stayed slaves through their lives. According to the law, slaves were considered property, which means they were priced.

We are proud to introduce Mallika City as the place to show that our ancestors have the wisdom that is second to no other and to demonstrate to the world the cultural identity deserve no less recognition.

Attractions

Saphan Han (Turnable bridge)    Named by its shape. In the past, it was a single sheet of wood laid across the canal. One end tied tightly to the bank, the other let loose. This way, it can be moved (or turned) allowing boats to pass through. In the reign of King Rama IV, it was rebuilt as with steel frame and wooden floor. Until, King Rama V changed it to the Venice’s Rialto or Florence’s Ponte Vecchio style which is a wide arch bridge with small shops on both sides, leaving the space in the middle for passersby. His Majesty loved visiting this bridge to buy imported dried fruits such as dried plum.
