riginally, Bang Pa-In was a riverine island. When Prasat Thong became the Ayutthaya king (1630 - 1655), he had the Chumphon Nikayaram Temple built on his family estate. Later, he had a palace built on a lake in the middle of the island where he could periodically reside.

The palace, surrounded by a lake 400 meters long and 40 meters wide, and the Chumphon Kikarayam temple, are all that remain of King Prasat Thong's construction work at Bang Pa-In.

Bang Pa-In was used as a country residence by every Ayutthaya monarch after King Prasat Thong. But when the new capital was established in Bangkok. Bang Pa-In ceased to be used and was left unoccupied for 80 years. It was only during King Mongkut’s reign (1851-1868) that Bang Pa-In was again visited by kings. King Mongkut stayed there and had a house built in the old palace’s compound.

His son, King Chulalongkorn (1868-1910) liked the place, stayed there every year and constructed the royal palace as it is now seen today. Important buildings inside the palace compound are:


Aisawanthipphaya - At Pavilion

Waraphatphimarn Hall

Later during his reign, King Rama V commanded the original one to be demolished and replaced with a European design building to be used as the Throne Hall to receive his subjects for royal ceremonies. In this hall are paintings of the royal historic records, Inao literature, Phra Aphai Mani literature and the Ramayana epic.

 สถานที่ท่องเที่ยว ท่องเที่ยว ท่องเที่ยว

This is the monastery located to the south of an island in the Chao Phraya River, on the river bank opposite the royal palace. In 1878, King Rama V ordered its construction to have the same architectural style of a Western cathedral.
The building and its decorations are of Gothic style and beautified with colorful stained glass. The base; where the principal image of Buddha and his followers were placed, was designed to resemble the one for the Cross in a Christian church, not a traditional Chukkachi base as seen in general. The window blocks were especially made for curved windows. On the Ubosot wall in front of the principal Buddha image, there is a picture of King Rama V created with stained glass. Situated to the right of the Ubosot is Ho Phra Khanthararat, a shrine where Phra Khanthararat - a Buddha image in the posture of requesting rain, is put for worship.

Opposite Ho Phra Khanthararat is another shrine, which is the house of a seated stone Buddha image protected by a seven headed naga. It is an ancient Buddha image aged a thousand years, built in the Lopburi period by a Khmer Craftsman. This venerated Buddha image is very close to the big banyan tree that spreads its branches to shade the area in front fo the Ubosot. Not far from the Ubosot, there is a cluster of stones naturally found in Thailand, which contains the relics of Chaochommanda Chum, a consort of King Rama IV and mother of Prince (Somdet Kromphraya) Damrong Rajanubhab and the members of the ‘Diskul’ family. From Bang Pa –In Palace, visitors can access the monastery through a cable car that carries 6-8 passengers at a time. The fare depends on the passengers’ contributions.
