Phan Phiphop Lila Bridge

Phan Phiphop Lila Bridge (Thai: สะพานผ่านพิภพลีลา, RTGS: Saphan Phan Phiphop Lila, pronounced [sā.pʰāːn pʰàːn pʰí(ʔ).pʰóp līː.lāː]; 'King's Cross Bridge') is a bridge across Khlong Khu Mueang Doem (คลองคูเมืองเดิม), or old moat, in Phra Nakhon District, Bangkok. The bridge connects Thanon Ratchadamnoen Nai (Inner Ratchadamnoen Road) with Thanon Ratchadamnoen Klang (Central Ratchadamnoen Road).

Following the construction of Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge (สะพานมัฆวานรังสรรค์; 'Bridge by the God Indra') in 1809, the construction of Phan Phiphop Lila Bridge began in 1902 at the command of King Chulalongkorn who desired to have an elegant bridge connected with the newly built Thanon Ratchadamnoen Nai. Construction was completed in 1906. King Chulalongkorn presided over the opening ceremony on 15 November 1906, at which time the name "Phan Phiphop Lila" was also declared.
