great historical place of the town

If you have little time for Lopburi, I recommend to visit this place. There are historical palace, temple, and a museum. It's quiet, clean, and has information for you.

The two working at the site the freaked as I was attacked from all sides. The result was two hudred dollars in medical bills from a hospital in Bangkok including Rabies immunizations.... More

Very fascinating journey inside 4 millennia of Thai history. The Palace is so beautiful, and its architecture is really unique being a blend of different styles from around the world. I loved the national museum, which is inside the Palace. (Definitely worth 150 bath, if you can't pay 150 bath for a site and museum of this level just make... More

This Palace hosts the King Nari festival which I would highly recommend going to do. Lots of stalls with food and gifts are there as well as a huge parade and dances and performances.

This is a significant historical landmark of Lopburi province. Apart from admiring the ancient ruins, there is a lot to learn about this critical period of Thai history when trade and foreign relations with Western countries such as France first commenced. There is a museum within the palace grounds, which is beautifully laid out where you can learn the history... More

Entrance fees for Thais is only 30 baht but a whopping and unfair 150 for farang. A number of farang declined when seeing the admission charge. Museum and grounds very interesting in the daytime. But at night we were fortunate to visit the palace when there was a free outdoor concert. The grounds were well lit and Thais dressed in... More

We toured the Isan region this November and saw many ancient temples and palaces. This palace in particular seems very unusual to me for some reason. It is an unusual main building with an impressive temple building behind it but small in comparision to some other great temples we have experienced in Thailand. The surrounding grounds are impreccable like most... More

Awesome. If you're in town, you should definitely check this place out! And take the time to read the information when you first enter.

Interesting ruins if you haven't seen any similar ones before (the others in Lop Buri or Ayutthaya or scattered around Thailand)... otherwise they all start to blend together.
