44 INTRODUCING THAILAND The Ramakien The Ramakien, the Thai version of the Indian Ramayana, is an allegory of the triumph of good over evil. The hero, Rama, is a paragon of virtue – the ideal king. The villain, the demon king Tosakan, is a tragic character of great dignity. This epic tale is thought to have become established after the Thais occupied Angkor in the 15th century. It has been an inspiration for painting and classical drama. All the Chakri kings have taken Rama as one of their names, and the old capital of Ayutthaya (see pp180–85) was named after Ayodhya, a fictional kingdom in the story.
