King Rama I had the Bangkok city pillar erected near the Temple of the Emerald Buddha on April 21, 1782, with the city’s horoscope inside. The original pillar was made of cassia wood known as Chaiyaphruek, measuring 75cm in diameter and 270cm high.

During the reign of King Rama IV, the old pillar was replaced by a new one made of the same kind of wood, measuring 5.115 metres high and standing on a base 180cm wide, sheltered by a Prang-shaped shrine as it appears today.
