Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park
Also referred to as Khao Wang (Palace Hill), Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park is a striking former royal palace complex. Split over three main hills, there are numerous buildings and structures with a blend of Thai, Chinese, Khmer, Sri Lankan, Indian, and European styles. The previous royal residence is a stunning Chinese-Portuguese building, and it sits atop the western hill. The ornate ceremonial hall, star-gazing observatory, the small royal temple of Wat Phra Kaeo, the maroon five-tiered pagoda of Phra Prang Daeng, and the white bell-shaped stupa of Phra That Chom Phet are other gorgeous highlights throughout the site.
