The Story of Ramakian

About the printing of a Thai Epic – The Story of Ramakian

The Story of Ramakian

This story was originally printed in the Thai year of 2545, with another 7 reprints made since that original.  This is an “illustrated” book that has been created mainly to be used as a “Teaching Aid Manual”.  This is how we wish to present it to you, as a teaching aid to help you get a better understanding of this part of Thailand’s mythical history.  Each chapter of the story also comes with an illustration to emphasize the story and give you a more clear thought, or feeling of the story.

Two Notes:

1.  At the bottom of each page is a link to the next page/chapter

2.  By clicking on any of the pictures, you can view a large version of that picture.

This Epic has been presented in a long series of short chapters:
