Photographer's Note

A few miles down the Chao Phraya River from Ayuthhya is the Bang Pa-In Summer Palace. This site was first used by the royal court as a retreat from the hot weather in the 17th century but fell into ruin after the fall of Ayutthaya; it was restored by King Rama IV in mid-19th century, though most of the buildings that exist today date from the reign of King Rama V, who regularly spent his summers here.

The European style structure laid out along an artificial ornamental pond you see here is the "Royal Cabana" of the palace.
