กรุงเทพมหานคร  |  Bangkok

Formerly, Krungthep Mahanakhon was called "Muang Bang Kok." When King Rama the Great performed the ceremony of the City’s pillars sanctuary on April 21, 1782, he changed its name to "Krungthep Rattanakosininth Ayothaya." During the reign of King Rama III, the name of the city was transformed into "Krungthepmahanakhon Bawonrattanakosin Mahintha Ayutthaya." In the following reign, King Rama IV modified this name by changing the word "Bawon" to "Amon," "Mahintha Ayutthaya" to "Mahinthra Yutthaya" and adding some suffix.

This capital city has the longest name in the world: “Krungthep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthra Yutthaya Maha Dilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udom Ratchaniwet Mahasathan Amonphiman Awatansathit Sakkathatthiya Witsanukamprasit.”
