Attraction Details :

Situated on the bank of Pasak River, Chankasem Palace was built during the reign of King Maha Thammaraja, the 17th Ayutthaya monarch, to be a residence of his son, later King Naresuan. The palace was later destroyed during the wars. It was abandoned until King Mongkut of the current Chakri dynasty ordered a reconstruction to serve as of this palace for use as a residence during his occasional visits to Ayutthaya.

Some of the highlights are :

·        Phlapphla Chaturamuk. This wooden four-gabled roof pavilion which was once a residence of King Mongkut during his visit to Ayutthaya is now the main building of Chantharakasem National Museum exhibiting the history of the palace and Ayutthaya. It is open everyday except Mondays, Tuesdays and national holidays from 9.00 a.m.-4.00 p.m. Admission is 100 baht

·        Phisai Sanyalak Hall. This is a four-storey tower was originally constructed during the reign of King Narai of Ayutthaya, but was destroyed during the 2nd fall of the kingdom. It was reconstructed during the reign of King Rama IV to serve as his sky observatory.

The palace is now a national museum, exhibiting national antiques such as Chinaware, ancient weapons, King Rama IV’s personal belongings, Buddha images, sculptures and votive tablets of different times.

 

Opening hours: Wednesday – Sunday except national holidays, 9.00 a.m.-4.00 p.m.
