This Chinese-style ceremonial gate is located at the Odeon Circle. It was built by Thais of Chinese descent to show their loyalty to King Bhumibol, and officially revealed on his 72nd birthday on 5 December 1999. The four Chinese characters on the arch mean 'Long Live The King' and are in the handwriting of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
