Mueang Mallika, R.S. 124 (Rattanakosin Era 124): 

“The Cultural and Lifestyle City"

Mueang Mallika represents a glimpse into the bygone era of Siamese life along the Chao Phraya River basin during the reign of King Rama IV. During the reign of King Rama V, in the Rattanakosin Era 124, significant transformations occurred in the way of life of the Siamese people. One notable change was the proclamation of the abolition of slavery. When the slaves were granted Thai status, they had to lead their lives independently, residing and earning a living on their own without being subject to the authority or care of the former masters. They had to sustain their lives, relying on themselves and living alongside other Siamese people. These lifestyle changes are considered the crucial roots of the modern Thai people.
