Was a hot afternoon when we visited this place. Proper attire is recommended when entering this place. As a friend of mine was wearing a faded with torn/slit fashioned jean was not allowed to enter until properly covered. So bear in mind of proper respectful clothing. Nothing much to see, maybe a place for learning its history, if one is interested. To cool down we stopped by near the entrance for a refreshing coconut drink & got the opportunity to see how a skilful person extract the whole coconut flesh out. Please see video included.
This palace was on the same grounds as my wife's college. It's bloody gorgeous. The giant komodo dragon looking lizards aren't harmful (I was told). Don't make any promises to the elephant God or offer him anything... just respect the view. Best part, look into the story in relation to the giant dog statue in memorial of King Rama the fifths dog. That's a true dog lover and a man to be respected.
