  • It was a fun experience. We had no entrance to pay what made it extra fun there are many Buddha images on display. Under the pictures in English where it found is what it is and how old it is. The most impressive was the carriages and the Royal urns. If you're there certainly do. You can then go through to the Palace and the beautiful reclining Buddha

  • There are many buildings. There are various art objects, ancient age, a hundred thousand years, there is Phra tamnak daeng and the Palace Phra pinklao's head, which can be visited. Bathing room, bedchamber. The book room. Chariot garage and much more. Want to come see it yourself, because it really takes a lot of see no less than three hours. It feels amazing, so much in the game and I see Thailand.
