Ministry of Defence

In front of the Ministry of Defence in Bangkok there is an open air museum of ancient cannons. What is most interesting here are not the guns themselves, but the fact that in 2004 someone decided it wasn’t a good idea to have the guns pointing directly at the Grand Palace. So, they decided to swing them around like you can see in this picture. Not sure if the fortune of the country improved because of this. But that is what they believed at the time.
