Currently during renovation which is pitiful but still, beautiful inside the main building. リノベーション中なのが残念だけど中は綺麗。 There is ashes of Rama 5 King ラマ5世の遺灰もある。 建物の中はヨーロッパの影響あり。 The decoration inside the architecture seem to have influence from western world. Beautiful decoration inside. 蝶番の細工も細かくて綺麗だ。

it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
