"The 10-day event is being organised to pay homage to King Narai the Great, who lived from 2123–2198 B.E. (1580–1655 AD). During his reign, King Narai turned Lop Buri province as well as Thailand (then known as Siam), into the centre of culture, religion and diplomatic relations.
Highlights include a regal ceremony and a spectacular procession to pay homage to King Narai the Great, a specially-organised ‘changing of the guards’ performance, a light-and-sound presentation as well as a host of cultural displays and dances.
This year, a ‘retro” market will be specially organised bringing in more than 50 shops from across the province to offer traditional food and beverages in exchange for ‘ancient’ Thai bullet money. With vendors donning traditional Thai costumes, visitors are also encouraged to arrive in their preferred forms of traditional costumes."
