The Rattanakosin kingdom is one of the most powerful kingdoms in the history of Thailand or Siam. The Rattanakosin Kingdom was considered as the fourth in terms of ranking as the center of power in ancient Thailand. The Rattanakosin Kingdom was very popular because of the continuation of Rattanakosin style even after Bangkok became new capital city of Siam. Rattanakosin also became the center of Buddha image, Buddha statues, and other various sculptures. (From Original Buddhas)
