Siam Commercial Bank

Around 1900 Thailand's economy was developing rapidly and a commercial banking system became necessary. After Prince Mahisorn did a successful pilot project in a shop house, King Rama V gave his brother permission to construct this first branch of the Siam Commercial Bank in 1907.

The baroque building was designed by Annibale Rigotti, an Italian architect from Turin responsible for many famous buildings of that time.
