Chulalongkorn University Pathum Wan, Bangkok August 2017
I was sitting outside the Music Hall at the University yesterday evening, waiting to go inside to a concert of flute music. I noticed the light coming through the trees and on going over to investigate was delighted with what I found. Often referred to as the Rain tree, the Chamchuri tree is a symbol of the University and these beautiful shady trees are found everywhere about the campus. Chamchuri is the common transliteration into English, though I think the Thai pronunciation of จามจุรี would be better rendered as, Jarm-jury.
Thank for your interesting reply! It is much appreciated. And thank you for introducing to me the concept of crown shyness and the little reminder that transliteration is a tricky business.
