On 13 September 2023, Mrs. Kanchana Patarachoke, Director-General of the Department of Information led the Diplomatic Corps, representatives of International Organizations and foreign media in Thailand on a visit to the Ayutthaya Gold Treasure Exhibition, Chao Sam Phraya National Museum, Ayutthaya Province. At the Exhibition, the participants were warmly welcomed by Mr. Somphot Sukaboon, Director of Chao Sam Phraya National Museum. Curators from the Office of National Museums as well as members of the National Museum Volunteers (NMV) also joined and guided the different groups of participants.
The visit was a unique opportunity for participants to explore Ayutthaya’s distinct history and archeology. The exhibition showcased exquisit gold treasures discovered inside the crypt of Wat Ratchaburana, including gold treasures of the kings and royal courts, and gold treasures used to worship the Lord Buddha, which underpin the traditional belief of enshrining Buddha relics and reflect the special relationship between Ayutthaya and foreign lands as told through the story of Buddhism. The exhibition also held Buddha relics unearthed from other archaeological sites in Ayutthaya.
The participants included Ambassadors, representatives of diplomatic missions and foreign cultural centers in Thailand from 26 countries as well as a representative of UNESCO Bangkok and 13 foreign media agencies in Thailand. The visit was part of the activities organized by the Ministry to promote better understanding about Thailand among Diplomatic Corps and foreign media. It also provided an opportunity to promote local tourism as well as museums and archeological works in Thailand to foreigners, which could also lead to further cooperation between the two sides in the future.
