Ancient City (Muang Boran)
The architectural group in Chinese style is believed to be part of the palace garden of King Rama II. It stood on the grounds of the grand palace and functioned as a private quarter where the king would rest and relax.
The garden was dismantled and numerous structures were given over to temples during King Rama III’s reign.
Ancient Siam purchased all of the original buildings from Wat Phai Ngoen in Yannawa, Bangkok, to show the considerable influence of Chinese art in the Thai court during the early Rattanakosin period.
