King Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke (Rama I) issued a royal command to build the city belfry near the Grand Palace around Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhalaram. Inside the belfry, there are 3 big drums, which are Klong Phra Suri Si, Klong Akkhi Phikhat in case of fire, and Klong Phikhat Phairi in case of war.
