Sanam Chan Palace - Thailand




Nakorn Pathom is a province of Thailand 56 kilometers from Bangkok. In 1907, a palace was built by King Rama VI when he was still a crown prince and named it Sanam Chan Palace. It was designed in French and English architectural styles with a little touch of Tudor and Thai.
Sanam Chan Palace shared part of the site to Silipakorn University (university students can be seen wandering around and having their pics taken in various locations). On December 5, 2003, the surrounding buildings were returned to the Bureau of the Royal Household as requested by the former king's daughter, HRH Princess Bejaratana Rajasuda Sirisobhabannavadi.
The entire premise is more like a park actually. I had an enjoyable time taking pictures and listening to the tour guide even if i wasn't able to comprehend all the things he said (My Thai language is poor, just so you know). And oh! On November 23, 2007 to December 2, 2007, Sanam Chan Palace celebrated its 100-year anniversary.
Is it not lovely? I used the canon power shot A490 : )

This castle looks like a fairytale story. Makes me think of Snow White or Cinderela. The gardens are beautiful and look so peaceful.
