What / Why :

Trooping the Colour in Bangkok is an annual ceremony at the Royal Plaza for officers and men of the King's Guard to pledge their allegiance and offer birthday blessings to their King.

The 12 contingents of 2,000 officers and men representing battalions of the King's Guard from all three services marched down Ratchadamnoen Avenue, resplendent in their colourful ceremonial uniforms and busbies, an array of scarlet, blue, green, yellow and white.

Led by their officers and the Colour parties each bearing the standard that is the pride of every fighting unit, the troops marched under the arches bearing the King's photographs to take up positions at the Royal Plaza.

Located at the end of Ratchadamnoen Avenue, the Royal Plaza is where the revered King Rama V Equestrian Monument stands against the Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall with its stately dome in the background.

On entering the Royal Plaza, the column halted, turned smartly to the left in extended order to face the Royal Pavilion and await the arrival of His Majesty.

View the troops who come to pay respect to His Majesty the King in a marching procession.
