Stone Inscriptions  (ศิลาจารึก)
Stone Inscription, The Kingdom of Sukhothai.

The third King of Sukhothai, Phorkhun Ramkhamhaeng,
regarded by Thais as the father of the nation and creator
of the Thai alphabet, records on his 1292 inscription the
abundant prosperity and religious piety of the people.

The stone inscription, 4-sided, 109 cm high of the 13th
century, Sukhothai is displayed in the National Museum
Bangkok. This obelisk was found at Sukhothai in 1833
by the then prince-monk who was to become King
Mongkut (King Rama IV) from 1851-1868.
