Catholic church at the Floating Market

Catholic church at the Floating Market
Thanks to the broad-mindedness of Kings Mongkut Rama IV (1851–68) and his son Chulalongkorn Rama V (1868–1910), the Catholic Church in Siam enjoyed peace under Pallegoix's successors, Bishops Dupont (1862–72) and Vey (1875–1909). Owing to the complications between France and Siam, in 1894, the missionaries had to endure the ill-will of local mandarins, though the minister of foreign affairs promised that no harm would be done to the missionaries and their work on account of the French invasion.
