Notes on the Geography of Thailand: Bangkok: Photo 31

world pictures Thailand: Bangkok

North of Siam Square and just across Rama I lies the anachronistic Srapathum or Lotus Pond Palace. It takes its name from the flowers that were common when this was a country house surrounded by rice paddies. This was the home of the father of Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IX.  It was the site of his son's wedding in 1950, and it was the home of the Princess Mother until her death in 1995.  It then became the home of the king's daughter, Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
