The Ancient City in Samut Prakan (Muang Boran)
The grandeur of the Ayutthaya court was reflected in the royal garden which was enlivened by the scenery and landscape of waterfalls, fountains and miniature rock formations.
During either auspicious or enjoyment times, there were royal command performances of music and plays in this setting, which later gave birth to the famous genre of court drama, Lakhon Nai. Various Jataka tales, folk tales and a number of foreign classics were adapted for plays at court.
The grand pavilion was specially designed and built for court performances.
