Chakri Day in Thailand is a national holiday. It is observed on April 6 every year, to commemorate the founding day of the Chakri Dynasty.

On this day, the Thai monarch (presently King Bhumibol Adulyadej) and members of the royal family preside over a grand, religious ceremony in honour of the previous kings. People share the royal family’s sense of patriotism on this day, by paying their respects to the previous rulers who played important roles in shaping the future of Thailand.

The festival is one of the most significant events in the Thai calendar. At atmosphere of great reverence is ever-present across the country on this day, as the king pays his respects to his predecessors at the Royal Panetheon, before proceeding to place wreath at the statue of King Rama I, the founder of the Chakri Dynasty.
