Built in 1900 as a royal palace, the mansion once provided a home for King Rama V. Renovated in 1982, the palace now commemorates the king's life and displays his photographs and art collection, as well as other Thai national heritage artifacts. Guided tours in Thai and English are available. Remember to dress conservatively when visiting this site--inappropriate clothes include shorts, ripped pants, and T-shirts.
