Tha Phra Chan is a pier on the historic Rattanakosin Island in Bangkok. You will find it on the eastern bank of the Chao Phraya River in the Phra Nakhon District. The pier is located beside Thammasat University’s campus of the same name. Tha Phrachan literally means “moon pier”.
More broadly, the name can also refer to the area around the pier and the university. The area is also famous as market for Thai amulets.
