THE ROYAL PLOUGHING CEREMONY
Sanam Luang, Bangkok

The Royal Ploughing Ceremony is an ancient Brahminical rite dating back to the Sukhothai period (1257 - 1350 A.D.) The ceremony, which heralds the start of the new rice-growing season, was undertaken to assure a successful planting season and an abundance of the nation's crops. Festivities were held to boost the farmers' morale, urging them to strive for an abundant harvest and ensure sufficient reserves for times of war as well as for export overseas.
