Ramakien Overview


The Ramakien (Thai: รามเกียรติ์; literally “Glory of Rama”; sometimes also spelled Ramakian) is Thailand’s national epic, derived from the Hindu epic Ramayana.


While the main story is identical to that of the Ramayana, many other aspects were transposed into a Thai context, such as the clothes, weapons, topography, and elements of nature, which are described as being Thai in style. Although Thailand is considered a Theravada Buddhist society, the Hindu mythology latent in the Ramakien serves to provide Thai legends with a creation myth, as well as representations of various spirits which complement beliefs derived from Thai animism.
