History

Jim Thompson was an American entrepreneur who is known for reviving the Thai silk industry in the 1940s. He has been an architect, adventurer, entrepreneur, art collector, socialite, and military intelligence officer with the OSS (a forerunner of the CIA). Later, he disappeared mysteriously on March 26th, 1967, after he went for a stroll in Malaysia’s Cameron Highlands. His life journey makes for an exciting read.

The mystery of Jim Thompson’s disappearance in 1967 remains unsolved. It seems like a Hollywood like story that involved the murder of his sister, CIA involvement and the mysterious disappearance of a high-profile millionaire.

Thomson quit his architectural career to join Delaware National Guard for more excitement. His grandfather James H. Wilson, the Union general whose men captured Confederate President Jefferson Davis. During World War II, Jim Thompson served as an operative for the Office of Strategic Services (the predecessor of the CIA today).

He set up OSS office in Bangkok after Japan’s surrender. After leaving service, he founded the Thai Silk Company Limited in 1948 with his partner. He had accumulated an intimate knowledge of the region with extensive travels in Southeast Asia. Resultantly, the Thai Silk Company became very profitable. 

He collected antiques and artwork and ultimately constructed Jim Thompson House in Bangkok to showcase them. On March 26th, 1967, he went for a walk from Malaysia's Cameron Highlands and never returned. Investigation and search for years produced neither explanation nor body.

His older sister was also murdered in her Pennsylvania home a few months after his disappearance. This case also remained unsolved.

Multiple Buddha images from the abandoned temples in other areas of Thailand were shifted and installed at Wat Pho(old name Wat Photaram). King Rama III brought about sweeping changes at Wat Pho in the subsequent years to restore and expand the temple complex in 1832.

This restoration lasted 16 years. During these years, the king built or restored the most present structures. The same era witnessed the emergence of the temple as a center of art and learning.
