Here is the transliteration:

"Krungthep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin
Mahadikok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani

The city of angels, great city, residence of the Emerald Buddha, the impregnable city of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated god, a city given by Indra and built by Vishnukarn.
